Start investing from as little as £5,000...

 

In todays market there are a number of ways to invest directly into property without the need to instruct solicitors, incur large costs and waste your precious time. Through Loan notes or listed Bonds, investors can invest directly into property with the same security as ownership, in fact sometimes with more security...

Security

Similar to a bank, your money is secured against property as a 1st charge meaning the property cannot be sold or mortgaged without your prior permission. It also ensures you are the first to be repaid from any proceeds of a sale or approved refinance. In most cases you get more security throughout this model simply because this is a loan on the property and has a limited loan to value (LTV). Therefore you along with many other investors will have lent the money against this property to no more than 70% of the value. If prices dropped or the property had to be sold quickly, you have 30% of the value as protection before your investment is affected. 

Diversification 

Through listed bonds, aside from the fact that you are protected by security trustees and FCA regulation, you also have diversification. What this means is your money is invested in a bond, which in turn uses it's funds to make loans. Therefore you money is secured against all the property the bond lends to, not just one specific property. This diversification gives you greater security should the value of any one property being adversely affected.
