Renting with Bricklane is the best experience I’ve had as a tenant”

Renters should feel at home. Our tenancies are for three years as standard, with rent rises are capped to inflation. Tenants don't pay admin fees and never have — a policy introduced long before the government’s ban was proposed.

Bricklane tenants get the chance to invest — meaning they’re able to own a share of the place they call home.

Questions

 

You might find our How it works page useful.

Register through our secure website. This takes about 10 minutes. You will be asked how much you want to invest and how you wish to fund your account (one or more of: ISA Transfer, single payment, or monthly recurring payment). We then perform identity and anti-money laundering checks and action your payment. Once this is complete, you can choose which funds you want to invest in, or opt to split your investment equally. After this your money is invested in each fund at the next investment cycle (within 2 weeks of when we receive your payment, which can take up to 7 days to reach us). With Bricklane, you invest in funds that own houses and flats. The properties are let to tenants and professionally managed on your behalf.

Over time, the value of Bricklane customers’ investments in each fund tracks movements in the properties owned, plus rental income is earned on top.

Once invested, customers can view the performance of their investments from their dashboard when logged into Bricklane. From there, customers can add more money, change their monthly contribution, and see more information about the properties they own a share of. They can also request to exit their investments, with no minimum holding period or exit fees.

 

Bricklane shares are held by a custodian bank, and are protected up to the first £85,000 by the FSCS in the unlikely event of their insolvency.

However, it’s important to understand that the FSCS doesn't cover you in the event that your investments do not perform as expected and you get back less than you originally invested. More information can be found at fscs.org.uk.

 

As with all investments, investing with Bricklane carries risks.

If you want to sell shares, there is no guarantee that you will be able to find a buyer for your shares within a reasonable timeframe at a price that is acceptable to you. The REITs invest in residential property, which are not highly liquid assets. Rental yields and dividends may be lower than estimated.

Tax rules and allowances depend on individual circumstances and may change in the future. A Stocks and Shares ISA or SIPP may not be right for everyone and tax rules may change in the future. If you are unsure if it is the right choice for you, please seek independent financial advice.

Before you complete sign up, you will be asked to read—and indicate understanding of—a detailed list of risks. For a full list of risks, please consult the REIT prospectus (London, Regional Capitals).

 

A UK Real Estate Investment Trust (REIT) is a UK company specialising in property investment that has to conform to higher standards of governance and risk management. In return, the REIT doesn’t have to pay corporation tax on rental income or increases in value on the properties held.

REITs must be based in the UK, distribute at least 90% of the rental income to investors through a dividend (which you can opt to re-invest), and be listed on an HMRC recognised stock exchange.

Both Bricklane’s Regional Capitals and London funds have been classified as REITs by HMRC. There is about £41bn of property investment in UK REITs including with companies such as British Land, Land Securities and Schroders.

 

Bricklane customers’ security is our top priority.

We use the same level of encryption as major banks, transfer data through 128-bit SSL encrypted channels, and keep any stored data on servers stored in secure facilities.

We protect the privacy of your information and will never share your data with any third party without your permission (for more information, please review our Privacy Policy).
