    The high fee you are referring to is partially due to the fact they have to read through trust deeds of your super fund to ensure it will not be breaching any SMSF laws.  Lawyers are not cheap.

    My fees are pretty reasonable I think. I tend not to charge hourly rates for the legal work and do fixed price agreements. For the mortgage broking side I generally don't charge, for the tax side I work with accountants who charge fixed fees for returns.

    Hi Kaz

    Sorry i have to disagree.

    I do a fair number of SMSF loans and you would be surprised as to the difference in costs / interest rates between lenders.

    The big 4 (Anz does not write residential SMSF loans) are out of touch when it comes to their charges and costs hoowever away from these lenders the competition is good.

    Remember many lenders charge on the basis that they consider the loan to be a Commercial transaction.

    Get your Mortgage Broker to shop around and i think you will be see the difference.

    As for the comments on lawyers fees i never have a problem in paying a sensibleprice for good advice.

    I know what we charge a client for doing a development finance deal or putting an investor into a Vendor Finance deal and i bet it is lot more than Terry charges for legal advice.

    Cheers

    Yours in Finance
