Property Partner review shows that Property Partner is United Kingdom – based real estate crowdfunding marketplace. So far over 13000 investors have already invested more than 131 million in pounds.

Property Partner was born out of frustration with the buy-to-let market. Buying an investment property is more like starting a business than making a simple investment. And recent government tax changes have made it uneconomic for the majority of individuals. Property Partner allows you to diversify your investment across properties you choose so you can take your view on where and when to invest with as much or as little as you want. You also have the ability to offer your investment for sale whenever you want, with the added protection of firm opportunities to exit at fair value.

Property Partner review: What I have experienced so far

Firstly, some words about opening account at Property Partner. As the company is FCA regulated you have to go through the short survey in order for them to evaluate your news about the investing. It took just a few minutes and I was all set to go further.

Secondly, some facts about my experience at Property Partner. Property Partner offers a wide range of investments ranging from property shares to development loan bonds. Property Partner acquires property (often with mortgages) then offers the property shares to investors. It’s important to think of Property Partner as an equity site rather than a peer to peer lending company. The properties are held inside individual SPV companies registered at Companies House. Yields on deals outside of London tend to be more attractive. Annual returns start from 2.5% on investments. When you invest in development bond loans, you are essentially lending money to a property developer to build, so I prefer to invest in the property shares. There is a 2% fee for any purchase but no fees to sell. Rental income is paid monthly and accrues from the time that you make the purchase. New listings appear on most Wednesdays and you can buy property at any time on the resale market.

All in all, Property Partner is a solid P2P crowdfunding platform from UK. More than 13000 investors are using their service so far and it offers to earn up to 10% annual returns by investing into real estate. The platform is supervised by the FCA.
