    Hello! I am interested in your advice regarding redraw facility. I put my PPOR on the market last week. However, I have not received any offers on my property yet. My husband and I placed an offer on a property but were rejected because we included an clause that it is subject to the sale of my property.
    We have pre-approval with a bank for a certain amount but we will need additional funds to meet the purchase price.

    What are the pros and cons of considering using my property's (current PPOR) redraw facility for our joint property (future PPOR)? Unfortunately I am not eligible for "bridging loan" with the bank because my property is currently secured with a different bank.
    Many thanks in advance!

    I agree with Terry - there may be ways you can get this done without bridging or 'subject to sale' .

    If you redraw your PPOR and use the funds for your new property, it might cause tax issues if you don't sell it and decide to rent it out, for eg.

    But these things can be worked out by your accountant. Or you can split the loan before you redraw to save yourself any potential future hassle.
