Key Points

  • One bedroom apartment currently being developed in Newark
    This one bedroom apartment currently being developed in Newark is due for completion in one year's time. This is the first of two tranches of shares and it covers the deposit which is due to be paid in October 2015. The remaining shares will be released in July 2016 and will be due for payment on completion - target date October 2016. As such, these shares carry a higher risk and therefore include rights to a higher proportion of the capital gains.
  • Prosperity Fund, who have a proven track record of developing investment properties, will be the LandLord
    As with other units being funded through CrowdLords, Prosperity Fund, who have a proven track record of developing investment properties, will be the LandLord as well as being the Developer. Prosperity Fund developments also come with a rental assurance agreement which includes a fixed, 12 month rental payment, paid annually in advance along with a guarantee on the property’s condition on return. With that agreement in place we are happy for this to be a 50% leveraged purchase.
  • The total investment period is 5 years
    The total investment period is 5 years which consists of 12 months up to completion and 48 months operation as a Buy-to-Let. It is designed for capital growth as most of the income goes to cover the mortgage and the management by Let Me. Due to the additional risks associated with investing off-plan, these initial shares are eligible for 100% of their share of the capital gains whereas the remaining shares will only be eligible to 75%.
  • Proven Investment Property Development Company
  • Rental assurance agreement with annual rental paid upfront once completed
  • Town Centre location
  • Off-plan investment designed to deliver strong capital gains

Local Property Market

Nottinghamshire as a whole has seen property prices slightly underperforming the national average over the past twenty years, however, the county has improved comparatively, year-on-year and it is anticipated that this will continue.

Situated on the banks of the River Trent, Newark is a beautiful town centrally located only 1 hour 40 minutes from London by train, and serving as a perfect historic commuter town for nearby Nottingham City.

This development is only a 5 minute walk to the market square, across the road from Sherwood Avenue Park, and benefits from a central Newark location.

* 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.
