About


Directly connecting Investors and Property Professionals so that more people can benefit from investing in property.

The majority of property investments in the UK are funded by relatively few people. We believe that, if we can change the balance and involve more people, then everyone could benefit.

People investing directly in property, rather than only earning interest on their savings in the bank, could get a better return. Others wishing to be LandLords or Developers could have access to the funds they currently can't get and on better terms. 

Our core principle, that we hold true in everything we do, is that by pooling resources we can achieve more - we can enable more people to own property across the UK, not fewer. We can improve the availability of high quality homes to either buy or rent and at reasonable rates. And we can help savers, whether they are young people saving to buy their first home, or pensioners looking for regular income, to get a better return.

With CrowdLords, everyone benefits.

Key points


How much should I invest? 

It's totally up to you how much you invest in a property. However, the minimum is £1,000 per property.

 

What's the difference between a Trial and Open investment? 

A Trial investment is a property that has not yet had an offer made on it. You can show your interest in investing but you are not committing any funds. You can post an amount you would like to invest if the property was to become Open and we will let you know when the status changes. 

An Open investment is an investment that is live. You can commit funds to the property and once it's fully funded you will receive your equity stake in return for your investment.

 

What happens if the LandLord is not performing well? 

If the LandLord is not performing as per the Managment Agreement then the Independent Director who is appointed to the SPV is able to intervene and act as an advocate to resolve any issues. If the issues are not resolved then there is the option for the shareholders to vote for the LandLord to be replaced. 

 

What happens if the property is empty? 

It is the LandLord's responsibilty to find tenants for the property. The projected returns allow for a void period. However, if the void period is longer than anticipated then there wil be no income received. 

 

Who covers the maintenance costs? 

Maintenance is the responsibility of the LandLord, as is the furniture and everyday running costs. These are paid out of the LandLord's share. 

 

What if it's not a favourable time to sell the property at the end of the agreed term? 

The Investors and LandLord are able to vote to keep the property for an extended period until it is a more favourable time to sell. The decision will require a 75% majoirty.


How do they charge?


A £500 listing fee that is charged to the LandLord.

A success fee of 5% of total amount of investment capital raised. 

A handling fee of 1% of all income paid out to shareholders (1% of all dividends issued).

An investment fee of 10% of the capital gain of the target property being sold as calculated by the Nominated Accountants (we only take a % of the capital growth if the property is profitable).


The majority of private rental properties in the UK are owned by relatively few people. We believe that, if we can change the balance and involve more people in Buy-to-let, then everyone could benefit. People investing directly, rather than only earning interest off their savings in the bank, could get a better return. Others wishing to be LandLords could have access to funds they currently can't get and on better terms. 

Our core principle, that we hold true in everything we do, is that by pooling resources we can achieve more - we can enable more people to own properties across the UK, not fewer. We can improve the availability of high quality rentals at reasonable rates. And we can help savers, whether they are young people saving to buy their first home, or pensioners looking for regular income, to get a better return.
