    I am buying a commercial property and have been advised that it should be bought in a company/Trust Structure rather than in an individual name.

    Just want to know if that is the usual way for buying a commercial property? any pro & cons?

    Hi psaini,

    Do you have Steve’s book “0 – 130 properties in 3.5 years” at all?  If so, and it is the 2009 version (the update), go read chapter 9.  It gives a really good writeup of just how and why Steve uses companies and trusts.  He tells me too, that the same system works for both resi and comm – but NOT if negative geared.  The latter would need a complete rethink.

    If you don’t have it, do yourself a favour and just buy it (for less than a night at the movies) –

    hope that helps,
