    Hi Everyone,

    It is getting close to the time when I will be able to borrow for an ip, I was just wondering if I can just use equity from my ppor to fund the whole purchase or do I need to add savings to it?

    If savings is needed what would be a minimum that the banks would look for? Is there an actual figure?

    Don't use any savings as you will be throwing tax deductions away.

    If you borrow 105% of the new investment value, than you should be able to claim interest deductions on the entire 105%.

    If you use cash for 20-25% of it, than you can claim interest deductions on 80% of the property value as you'll have less investment debt.

    To borrow 105%, take out a separate split loan against one of your properties for 20-25% of the value of the new property your looking to purchase. Use these funds as your deposit and seek out the remaining 80% via another separate loan (so you avoid x-coll and each loan is secured by one property).

    Cheers,
    Redom

    As Redom said.
    Then apply the savings you have against your PPR loan account - offset. So you reduce your non deductible debt.

    By using this method you have the same total amount of funds applied across your PPR and IP, just that the mix of deductible and non deductible is maximised!
