What is a Property Loan?
A property loan is a Loan Investment like all others but linked to returns from property. Property Loans and property crowdfunding pay investors a fixed return over a set period of time. This is particularly useful if you know that you don’t need the money for a set period of time. For example, if you are 50 years old, then you still have 5 years until you can access money in any private pension that you may have. This might cause you to look at 5-year loan investments, for a lump sum, because by choosing investments with a fixed rate of return, you would be able to calculate your exact return and also the value of your pension when you reach age 55. If you are looking for simple, secure and diverse property crowdfunding loans, we work with the top UK property companies and can help you invest in a portfolio of property loans.
Why Choose a Property Loans as an Investment?
Protecting your investment is always the top priority. A Property Loan normally has a capital asset offered as security to the investors. Property Loans also generate returns from a sector which is easy for the investor to understand. The development of property creates profit which is paid to the investors as agreed in a contract at the outset.
Can I Invest my Pension in Property Loans Before age 55?
Here at The Landlords Pension we have helped over 1000 people take control of their existing or frozen pensions at any age to invest in property based investments. With regard to the pensions, these are usually arranged through the use of a Small Self -Administered Scheme also known as a SSAS pension. There are various reasons why people decide to transfer their frozen or existing pension schemes over to a SSAS, the main ones being the investment choice and flexibility offered by this type of arrangement, control over their own funds and the fixed returns offered in lieu of the volatility and uncertainty of equity-based investments, where the vast majority of peoples funds sit.
How Does a Pension Loan Investment Work?
Whether a loan is purchased through a trust such as a SIPP or SSAS pension or with cash funds the process is exactly the same and very simple to do. When the funds are available the individual can choose which investment loans suits their own personal requirements with regard to the term, location and perceived risk. A legally binding contract is then produced specifying the investment amount, term, agreed fixed returns and the specific property or properties on which a legal charge will be secured to protect the investor.

How Safe are Property Loans?
Everyone has a different view and concept of risk. Some institutions will consider any investment in property as a high-risk strategy while promoting equity-based investments as a low or medium risk. On the other hand, many property investors would consider a property loan, with fixed returns and a 1st legal charge over the physical property as a low risk and unsecured stocks and shares investments as high risk.
