    Hello everyone,

    I am in the following situation at the moment (figures are imaginary) :

    Loan Amount Security Purpose Type
    1 $400,000 IP1 Investments Primary
    2 $30,000 IP1 Non Deductible Equity Release
    3 $700,000 PPOR Non Deductible Primary
    4 $50,000 IP1 Non Deductible Equity Release

    Loan 1-3 are already setup with it's own individual offset account.
    Now, I am in the process of setting up Loan 4.
    Should I set it up by topping up Loan 2 or create a new split (Loan 4) ? If I split, this will cost $10 extra pm in account keeping fees.

    I plan to purchase an investment property later down the line at which times I would have accumulated around $50k savings..I would want to use the savings to pay the existing equity release loan (non deductible) and redraw for investment purpose to maximize my deductions.

    I hope I have made myself clear :)
    Thanks in advance.

    No you should not add to an existing loan = mixed purpose loan and it would create issues if you ever rented out the main residence. You will be using loan 4 to refinance loan 2 so keep them separate.
