How your investment works for you

Access our online platform easily

Once you’ve invested, your money is entered into the next fortnightly cycle to buy shares in your chosen property portfolio. Before investment, it’s held securely in a segregated account at a major UK high street bank.

Your investment is spread across all of the properties in your chosen portfolios.

Earn returns from rental income and capital growth

Capital at risk

Your investment will reflect the change in property prices and the rental income these homes generate1.

The value of your shares will change after every fortnightly investment cycle, which will be shown on your dashboard.

Rental income is automatically reflected in the value of your shares. You can choose to receive this income quarterly as a dividend, or reinvest into property, compounding your returns.

Investments are automatically diversified and fully managed

As more people invest in the funds, money is used to buy more properties. As the portfolios grow, your investment is automatically spread across each property added to the fund.

Properties and tenants are managed on your behalf, in conjunction with our partner Touchstone. We are committed to providing tenants with an excellent renting experience.

Request a withdrawal at anytime

Submit a request to withdraw at anytime online via your dashboard. We do not lock you in to a minimum investment period, and there are no withdrawal fees.1

Your shares will automatically be entered into the cycle to be sold to another investor.

Money will be deposited in your bank account once the investment has been sold.

  1. If there is ever a shortage of buyers for your shares, you will have the option of waiting for a buyer to sell at market value, or offering them at a discount to incoming investors to sell them faster. You will be given this choice in your dashboard, with the opportunity to set the maximum discount at which to sell your shares to an incoming investor.
Capital at risk

As with all investing, your capital is at risk. You may not be able to sell your investment within a reasonable timeframe. Investments are made through REITs. Rental yields and dividends may be lower than estimated.

You should note that tax treatment depends on the individual circumstances of each customer and may be subject to change in future. Bricklane does not give financial advice. If you are unsure about whether investment is right for you, you should seek independent advice before investing, including tax advice.
