Key Points

  • 13 flats being developed in the heart of Derby town centre
    This is an Interim Equity investment in one of 13 flats being developed in the heart of Derby town centre. As part of a substantial residential development, Beckett House adjoins the Grade II listed Becket Street Buildings built in the late 19th Century. Becket Street is surrounded by an array of amenities including offices, local retailer and a whole host of leisure facilities.
  • Finished with a modern exterior
    Beckett House will be finished with a modern exterior to contrast the part brick, part stone buildings next door. This unit was secured offplan by an overseas investor who is now unable to complete the purchase. So the Developer, Prosperity, will play the role of LandLord for a period of 12 months.
  • Due for completion in July
    The development is due for completion in July and on completion it will be covered by a contract with Let Me and therefore includes guaranteed rent paid annually in advance. This delivers an income of 4% p.a paid up front. It also includes a pre-agreed share purchase at the end of the term that delivers capital growth of 10.3% giving total returns of 14.3% p.a.
  • Situated at the heart of Derby City Centre
  • Heavily discounted purchase price at Off-plan rates
  • Fully managed by Let Me on completion
  • 4.0% rental income return paid annually in advance
  • A pre-agreed exit price delivering capital growth of 10.3%

Local Property Market

Derby has seen property prices underperforming over the past twenty years when compared with the rest of England & Wales, however, they are improving and it is felt that the significant regeneration schemes along with other recognition of its potential e.g. its identification as a 'Top 25 European City of the Future by fDI, will help the local property market to catch-up with the national average.

Beckett House is situated in Derby, in the county of Derbyshire. As England's most central city, Derby boasts a series of high grade transport systems. Its rail network offers direct services to a number of destinations including London, Nottingham, Birmingham, Sheffield, Newcastle and Cardiff, with several bus operators servicing the whole of the city and out to neighboroughing areas.

The development is located close to the Derby ring road allowing onward access by car to the A38, A52 and A50 trunk roads and in turn the motorway networks. It's also just 10 miles from East Midlands Airport which provides over 95 direct flights worldwide.

* 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.
