WHAT IS PENSION BORROWING TO FUND A PENSION PROPERTY?
Enthusiasm for lending to self-directed pensions is back. Banks are now making loans to pensions again. The pension structure can borrow up to 50% of the pension property value on a capital and interest basis. The term is usually 15 years.
WHAT IS THE CAPITAL AND INVESTMENT SCHEDULE?
Repayments are on a full capital and investment schedule.
- Repayment term – maximum of 15 years.
- Interest only loans to pensions are forbidden under Revenue rules and regulations.
- The term of the loan will need to at least match the unexpired term of the lease on the target property.
WHAT TYPE OF LOAN SECURITY IS REQUIRED?
- Pension borrowing is always granted on a limited basis. This means that in case of default, the lender cannot pursue the assets of the trustees or the pension scheme participant.
- When the property is the only asset provided as security for the loan, a lender requires a rental yield that is enough to meet capital and interest loan repayments.
