CrowdProperty funds £925,000 project in under 10 minutes
CROWDPROPERTY has funded a £925,000 residential property project in under 10 minutes, with almost half of investors’ funds coming via tax-efficient vehicles.
The peer-to-peer property platform said that 113 lenders had funded the project, which will build 11 houses on the site of a former hotel in Plymouth.
Almost half of the funding came through CrowdProperty’s Innovative Finance ISA and Small Self Administered Scheme (SSAS) pensions, the platform said.
The borrower is an experienced developer and director at SPV Millstone Land & Developments.

It launched its Innovative Finance ISA in February, offering target returns of up to eight per cent.
