IRA Non-Recourse Financing is a loan in which the IRA account holder is not personally liable for repayment of the loan. The security instruments allow no recourse (personal liability) against the individual account holders or the balances of your IRA funds. In the event of default/foreclosure the lender can only look solely to the property as the source of repayment. The non-recourse lender cannot pursue other assets owned by the account holder or the IRA.
Most non-recourse lenders will require a down payment of at least 30%-35% of the purchase price vested in a Self Directed IRA to buy rental properties using a non-recourse loan. This is subject to loan approval, including an real estate appraisal acceptable to the lender. Insufficient cash flow or the condition of the property may require a larger down payment. Non-Recourse loans are available in all 50 states.
