Bricklane 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 returns from both portfolios
Both funds have made strong returns for investors to date. The Regional Capitals fund returned a total of 18.1% since September 2016, while the newer London fund has returned 10.6% since July 2017.
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.

Creating a fairer market
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.
I want Bricklane to keep me up to date on my account by sending general information,
news on portfolio updates, and promotions that I may benefit from.

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’s annual management fee, but
gross of transaction fee. Bricklane’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. 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.
