    Lets say

    Property A Value is $600K Loan is $400K
    Property B Value is $600K Loan is $400K

    Is it possible to use equity from both properties towards new purchases without setting up 3 new loans (1 each against all 3 properties)?

    Thanks.

    How would this work from a tax point of view?

    Get a loan on each property or cross and get one loan. Increasing existing loans is possible but would mean mixed purpose loans.

    Yes I've done this myself in the past. Don't know if you could still do it today.

    What I did in theory (used your numbers, not mine):

    Property A "$200k" equity was borrowed, with LMI, into a new loan sub-account secured by Property A. I'll call this EquityLoan A $160k (80% of $200k). This is a sub-account of the original loan. This is not "setting up a new loan".

    Property B "$200k" equity was borrowed, with LMI, into a new loan sub-account secured by Property B. I'll call this EquityLoan B $160k (80% of $200k). This is a sub-account of the original loan. This is not "setting up a new loan".

    Using EquityLoan A + EquityLoan B, I was able to buy Property C which has its own NEW loan.

    So, I'm left with

    Property A Value is $600K Loan is $400K
    Property B Value is $600K Loan is $400K
    Propery C Value $500K funded by EquityLoan A $160k + EquityLoan B $160k + NewLoanC $230k = $550k owing

    Total owing = $400k + $400k + $550k = $1.35m

    Sounds like a new loan to me!

    Hahaha is it?

    I did loan top-ups and then organised a "split" into a new sub-account.

    I didn't think they were new loans...because same lender, same account number for existing loan and new account number for the sub-account.
