Key Points

  • Purchased off-plan and was completed in 2017
    This one bedroom apartment was initially purchased off-plan and was completed in 2017. Existing shares have been issued in two tranches: The first tranche (Redeemable A Shares were issued in 2015 to cover the deposit during the construction, and the second (Redeemable B Shares) were used to complete the purchase.
  • Current tenant has only recently taken up residence on a 12 month AST contract.
    The construction took 9 months longer than anticipated and so the current tenant has only recently taken up residence on a 12 month AST contract. So the intention is to sell the property, targeting an owner occupier, in 10 months time. During this period all income after costs will be retained by the SPV.
  • Investment is to refinance an existing property for a further 10 months.
    This investment is to refinance an existing property for a further 10 months. Many of the current Investors have elected to stay in for the extended period and these funds will be used to Redeem the shares belonging to those who wish to exit now.

If the property is sold earlier than planned then investors will be offered the opportunity to redeem early at a rate that maintains the 11.0% p.a. return.

* The Risk Return Profile is a subjective assessment made by CrowdLords based on the information provided by the LandLord. Investors should make their own assessment of Risk & Reward before investing


Capital Returns

We include a CrowdLords Risk Rating to illustrate where the investment lies on our Risk Return Profile.  Where risks are higher it is usual to expect a higher return and this is designed to aid quick comparisons only. It is our opinion only and should not be taken as a recommendation. You should judge the Risk for yourself using the information provided and your own investigations to form your own opinion.
We rate Risk across 5 parameters and grade them as being A, B, C, D or E. A being lower Risk. The five areas we grade are:

The Investment Period – the longer the period, the less the risk
Macro location and market – has the area performed well historically
Micro location – is the property in a good location for rental / sale
Level of Development – the degree of development and the cost / time risks
Track Record – the track record of the LandLord / Developer

We combine these into a weighted rating between A and E and show how the Risk / Return compares with what we would expect.

About the Sponsors

With this Investment, CrowdLords has the role of Managing Investor and is responsible for managing the property as the LandLord.

In these instances, CrowdLords has a small equity stake in order to accommodate the legal structure, and we retain income in the SPV to provide a buffer when it comes to the exit.

We use Complete RPI, a specialist letting service, to manage and let the property on our behalf. When it comes to the end of term, we arrange the sale through a local agent. Post sale, when Investor shares have been redeemed, then we are also responsible for closing down the SPV.
