    Hi guys

    I've sold my PPOR and am buying a new PPOR (similar price). Broker has suggested transferring the security of the loan and keeping the same loan. Is there a way to do this so that if the new PPOR becomes an investment property down the track the interest will be deductible? Can you do this by repaying the loan and then redrawing? Not sure how timing would work...

    The interest on the loan that relates to the purchase of the property could be deductible.

    But to be safe I would pay back the existing loan and borrow 80% or 105% of the new purchase.

    Yes - so there should be no extra interest incurred.
