Lewis has a proven track record with a sound strategy for this project. Furthermore the LTV is lower than our usual offerings reducing the risk profile.
Our in-house property experts thoroughly assess each project proposal. We scrutinise the developer and any of their partners’ track records. Only the most promising projects, by the most experienced developers, will receive an informal offer. CrowdProperty will only work up to certain loan-to-value and loan-to-cost percentages, and each project must meet our 25% profit-on-cost criteria. For more information please view our risk statement.
A ‘1st legal charge’ gives CrowdProperty the legal right to take ownership of a property in the unlikely event that a property professional defaults on their loan repayments. 1st legal change is the highest level of security and gives CrowdProperty all the rights that a mortgage company holds. We have 1st legal charge on every project listed on our platform. This is an essential, non-negotiable criterion to ensure your funds are safe.
Our in-house experts perform strict and rigorous checks on all projects proposed. With almost 100 years’ experience in the industry, we work in partnership with our borrowers. We work in partnership with our borrowers until project completion. If a borrower were to default, CrowdProperty’s 1st legal charge allows us to take ownership of the project. Here we would utilise industry experience to ensure the most suitable exit strategy was followed.
