    Having just read Steve McKnight’s 0-130 and 0-260+ properties, I’m curious about his claim that you can take out mortgages to purchase property in a trust/company structure, and then you can leverage your income to guarantee the mortgages and do this multiple times with separate lenders. Or have I misunderstood it?

    Is anyone able to explain what he meant by this? Has there been a change in laws or lender policy that no longer allows this?

     

    Thanks

    Hi Evan,

    Do check out this link – https://www.propertyinvesting.com/topic/5086923-using-business-income-as-guarantor-to-a-loan/ – where another member asked a similar question.  Also, see where Steve also added some words to help.

    If you have the older books, you will be missing the “Chapter 9” that I reference.  It has to be the updated book to get that chapter re Trusts.

     

    Also, I used Search to look for other posts where Trusts were discussed.  This link is quite complex, and it includes some very good input especially from Terryw.  Here’s the link first :-  https://www.propertyinvesting.com/topic/5068817-home-loan-borrowing-using-trust/#post-5076652

    Do look for this part of one of Terry’s replies :-

    Some lenders will disregard personal guarantees as long as the borrower is paying their own way and the guarantor is not needed to fund it.

    You will find the quote above at this link – https://www.propertyinvesting.com/topic/5068817-home-loan-borrowing-using-trust/page/2/#post-5076654

    I found this whole topic was a great learning tool, with both Steve McKnight and Terryw adding very useful information.  I hope it helps you too,

    Benny

    Thanks Benny. I appreciate the quick response. I’ll give these read and try to get my hands on an updated book.

     

    Cheers,

    Evan
