Investment Fee

One off charge when you buy an investment. Helps to cover the cost of buying property, and helps protect our investors by discouraging short-term speculative trading. You’ll pay a single investment fee every time you invest. .

For the first £25,000, the upfront investment fee is 2%. For invested amounts above £25,000 this investment fee halves to 1%.

Pension (SIPP) customers are charged investment fees of 1.25%, with a minimum investment of £10,000.

*The £25,000 threshold for the reduced investment fee is calculated as total payments made into your account, minus any withdrawals, excluding fees. Learn more

Annual Management Fee

Annual charge for the ongoing support of your investment, which includes all fund-related costs (e.g valuation, depositary). This means our Ongoing Charges Figure is also 0.85% - a fraction of comparable investments. This fee is automatically deducted from your earnings.

Fee comparison

For SIPPs and investment periods over five years, the difference is magnified.

Capital at risk

The value of your investment can go down as well as up. 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. 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.
