The better way to own

Bricklane.com is an online investment platform enabling everyone to invest in expertly chosen property portfolios, from £100.

The best of property ownership

Residential property,
nothing else.

Our funds only contain residential properties — no commercial, no corporate overheads. Investors’ returns actually reflect rent and property price changes, without the volatility of equities markets.

Choose the locations you invest in

Choose from two funds: Regional Capitals — including the cities of Birmingham, Leeds and Manchester — and London. The fund risk and reward profile varies with location, so we give customers the choice of which area to invest in.

Strong first-year performance

In its first year, the Regional Capitals fund made investors 8.72%, the newer London fund has returned 8.83% since late July.

Built for better returns

Make money tax-efficiently

The most tax-efficient way to invest in UK residential property. Through ISAs or SIPPs, combined with REIT status from HMRC, investors pay no tax on property gains or income.

Compound earnings, effortlessly

Opt to automatically reinvest rental earnings and your returns will compound, earning rental income on your rental income.

Benefit from our scale

Investors benefit from scale discounts we’ve negotiated with suppliers. All investments are automatically spread across the portfolio of properties in each fund invested in, and further properties as they are added. Risk is spread across different properties and areas.

Founded on property intelligence

Property selection powered by technology

Independently valued

Renting that’s better for everyone

Renters should feel at home. Happy tenants stay longer, which works well for everyone. Tenancies are for three years as standard, but allow tenants to leave sooner if they wish to. We have also capped rent rises inside this period to inflation.

No fees. Fast responses.

Our tenants don’t pay admin fees, and didn’t before a government ban was proposed. In conjunction with our partner Touchstone, we make sure that our tenants are well looked after, and never wait more than 24 hours for a response.

Past performance and forecasts are not reliable indicators of future performance. Net yields represent an estimated 5-year average rental yield, net of property costs, fees and taxes. Actual yield performance may be higher or lower. Tax rules apply and may change in future.

Fund performance shown net of Bricklane.com’s annual management fee, but gross of transaction fee. Bricklane.com’s standard transaction fee is 2%.

Over the course of a three year investment, the standard transaction fee would have an annualised impact of c. -0.7%. The full transaction fee is charged investment - these figures are shown for illustrative purposes only. Impact would be lower for longer-term investments, and higher for shorter term ones.

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. If you are unsure about whether investment is right for you, you should seek independent advice before investing, including tax advice.
