Can my SMSF purchase my investment property?

A common question that often comes up is, can my SMSF buy a residential rental property, holiday home, or house from me or someone related to me? The answer is no, not unless the property is business real property (a property used wholly and exclusively for business). And, in most cases, residential property will not meet the requirements to be business real property.

It’s important to bear in mind that the penalty for breaching the related party investment rules is up to 12 months in jail.
