** Where a loan part has been offered with partial sales enabled, each partial sale was counted.

LandlordInvest launched the secondary market in May 2017.

Joe Vallender, LandlordInvest’s Chief Technology Officer: “We launched the secondary market in May 2017 and found it to be popular immediately, and we’re pleased to see this activity continue. LandlordInvest’s investors may wish to access their capital mid loan term and an active secondary market increases the chance they may do so.”

What is LandlordInvest Limited?

LandlordInvest is a fully FCA authorised secured peer-to-peer lending platform and an ISA manager within the fast-growing peer-to-peer lending industry. We provide a marketplace where lenders can earn higher returns, than lending through other peer-to-peer lending platforms, by lending to borrowers that have difficulties obtaining financing from high street lenders. Secured lending means that all our loans are always secured by property.

Our customers are:

  • Borrowers - professional landlords that are looking to borrow £30,000-£750,000 up to 5 years on a buy-to-let basis. They would also be able to raise short-term financing, bridging loans with a maximum term of 18 months.
  • Lenders - Anyone that has at least £100 to lend will be able lend. We aim to offer lenders risk adjusted returns between 5%-12% per annum.
