CrowdProperty Comments

Whilst there is risk in any loan you make and your capital is at risk, we believe that this is a relatively low risk project.

The borrower on this development is highly experienced and so very capable of delivering this project on time and to cost. The building is in a fantastic location, in the centre of the town with high rental demand. We like it when the borrower has to use some of their own money, which gives them more incentive to get the project right and also helps keep the loan to value relatively low.

This is why we are delighted to award this project the CrowdProperty stamp of approval.
