Investing in property as part of your pension solution

You’ll often hear people foregoing the benefits of pensions because they think investing in property is their ‘pension’. In fact, members of the Options SIPP or SSAS can get the best of both worlds by investing in freehold or leasehold UK commercial property.

Types of UK Commercial Property include

  • Offices, shops, warehouses, factories
  • Land, commercial forestry, garden centres
  • Dental surgeries, vets practices
  • Legal practices
  • Hotels, leisure complexes

Properties can be purchased by you, your family, your business, or a syndicate.

All property transactions are subject to HMRC prevailing rules in addition to property law.

Borrowing

It is also possible for a pension scheme to borrow funds from a lender to assist with a property purchase (subject to HMRC rules). Currently, any borrowing is limited to an amount not exceeding 50% of the net value of the pension fund in question.
