Leading Property Investors Trust ALIC

Our clients share their experiences of transformation and growth.

Our journey with ALIC started 5 to 6 years ago when we purchased land and subsequently built our first home. Since then, we have continued our association with them, and it has proven to be a decision we do not regret. Their team not only provided financial guidance but also helped us build our wealth through a well-thought-out investment portfolio.

Trusting someone with your finances is a crucial decision, and ALIC has consistently demonstrated reliability. Their approach goes beyond transactional relationships; it's about building a lasting partnership.

There are lenders, banks and brokers, and then there is ALIC. Kevin Agent and his team are amazing in finding solutions for your business or personal needs. They helped me establish my business, sorted out my home loan and savings and helped me buy my new home without any stress or worry and financially my family has never been better.

Look no further than the Australian Lending & Investments Centre. No one better and highly recommended.

Natasha has been an exceptional mortgage broker for us for the last decade. We have come to rely on her expertise implicitly and trust her completely. She has impressive efficiency. She always gives personalised guidance that suits our circumstances (which are complex), and she is honest when she thinks something is not a good idea. Lastly, she is so friendly and such a great communicator that every interaction is easy and enjoyable.

We've recommended Tash to all of our friends who have sought mortgages and they would all write something similar. Highly recommend.

Make Your Super Work for You

Depending on your SMSF’s trust deed, you may be able to use your super to invest in property. 

And, while commercial property can be a good standalone investment, it’s especially ideal for small business owners. 

The sole-purpose test means you can’t live in property acquired through your SMSF – but you can rent a commercial property to your business at market rates, which means your business’s rent goes directly into your super. 

Think that could be a good pathway for your business? 

Ask us about establishing an LRBA and finding a best-fit commercial loan. 

And, if you’re paying off an existing high-interest SMSF loan from one of the Big Four, we’ll help you refinance with a lower-rate lender.

Questions About Commercial Loans

What is a commercial property loan?

Commercial property loans involve buying or refinancing an already-existing retail, industrial or multi-residential property. They can also be used to finance the subdivision, development and construction of these properties.  

What deposit do I need for a commercial property loan?

The amount you’ll need for a commercial loan can vary depending on your lender and the type of property. Generally speaking, you can expect at least a 30% deposit, although you may be able to borrow between 5% and 90% of the commercial property value, depending on your personal and business circumstances. 

How can I qualify for a commercial property loan?

Commercial property loans have different qualification criteria depending on their purposes and lenders. Development loans from traditional banks, for example, may come with pre-sale requirements. Generally, though, you’ll need to provide a deposit, at least two years of tax returns, and proof of your ability to service the loan. 

If you’re taking out a construction or development loan, you may need to show evidence of your project’s viability and your company’s overall financial health.  

Your broker will work with you to make sure you have the right documentation. They’ll know exactly what each lender requires, which will help you build a strong case for loan approval.
