Local Property Market

Despite lower than national average growth in recent years, Peterborough is going through a renaissance with values expected to increase steadily over the coming years. Situated just 80 miles north of London it is building a reputation as a long term sustainable growth area.

Already a key player within the 'London-Stanstead-Cambridge-Peterborough corridor' - a priority growth area defined by CLG - Peterborough has attracted a number of high profile businesses that have begun relocating to the area. Eight years into a fifteen year £1 billion redevelopment, the City's transformation grows from strength to strength; and this has resulted in significant rental demand which currently outweighs supply by around 2:1.

* 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.
