Once a user is registered on the platform and is designated to be an investor, then it is possible to transfer any investment money into your investor account by bank transfer. There are no fees payable to set up a investor account. Money in a investor account will be held in a segregated client account for each project. This is an escrow account which is managed by a 3rd party, who are suitably qualified legally to do so, and are insured against professional indemnity. This escrow account can be used only for the building project, into which the investor has in initially pledged then invested, until the completion of the project. Completion is interpreted as the point at which the project has finished in its entirety including but not restricted to the full completion of the properties, all external works, connection of all utilities and issue of all appropriate certificates and permissions to occupy. After the completion of the project the investors are returned their original investment and the investment return payable, as agreed under the investment agreement terms and conditions. An investor’s funds will be allocated against an investee and a construction project, and will receive any return in accordance with the Investment Contract associated with the loan note agreement. The commencement of the investment will be considered to be active once funds are cleared into the escrow account. If funds do not clear, the investor will be deemed to have never allocated the funds and no investment return will become due. CrowditBuildit Ltd is not covered by the Financial Services Compensation Scheme (‘[sg_popup id="10"]FSCS’[/sg_popup]). If an investor suffers a loss, either by the investee not repaying the investment or for any other reason, the investor will not be entitled to compensation from the Financial Services Compensation Scheme (‘FSCS’). By agreeing to these T&C’s the investor understands and accepts that any investment is as a consequence made entirely at their own risk in this regard.  

    Cancellation rights

    If you are a consumer, you have a legal right to cancel your investment within 14 days of the date that your funds have cleared.  Advice concerning your legal right to cancel is available from your local Citizens’ Advice Bureau or Trading Standards office.

    The Investment process

    An investor can invest money by selecting building projects which appear on the website. The invested money is used to build specific properties, as detailed on the website, through a project company that is wholly owned by CrowditBuildit Ltd. This project company is termed the ‘Investee’. Any agreed repayment (possibly construed as interest instead of dividend due to the nature of a debenture) and return of capital to an investor will be made once the project invested in has reached completion and is paid from Investee company profit(s).  An investor can make multiple investments in multiple projects as detailed on the website, with each investment being covered by a different investment agreement. An investor can make more than one investment in a single project, with each investment being covered by a different agreement.

    The Investment Contract

    Once an investor has made an investment, an Investment Contract is simultaneously created. Each separate investment, whether in the same project or another project, will be covered by a separate Investment Contract, which applies a loan note instrument. The Investment Contract may be generated automatically by the website. Once agreed and signed, a copy of the Investment Contract will be stored by CrowditBuildit Ltd, and a copy made available for the Investor. This may be provided in physical form, or for download as a pdf file. Acceptance of the investment conditions is compulsory and may be activated by ticking a box on the website when prompted. The Investor copy of the Contract cannot provided (downloaded or otherwise) until the appropriate acceptance has been confirmed. In the event that the Investor does not accept the terms and investment conditions, no enforceable contract will be issued and the proposed investment will automatically become null and void, at which time any and all investment funds deposited will be returned to the Investor. An example of the investment contract is available on request, by emailing Each investment will be for the period specified in the Investment Contract applying to it. The period of the Investment Contract will in all cases be a minimum term of 182 days and a maximum term of 728 days. An Investment Contract may be renewed at the end of the term by agreement in writing between the Investor and CrowditBuildit Ltd. In certain circumstances and entirely and solely at the discretion of CrowditBuildit Ltd, the Investment Contract can be terminated early, for example (but not limited to) an early completion of the project. An Investment Contract is in its entirety, between the investor and the Investee. CrowditBuildit Ltd has no liability in relation to the Investment Contract. At present and until further notice or until such time as a change is implemented by the appropriate statutory authority, all income derived from any investment contract entered into between the investor and the investee (CrowditBuildit Ltd) is taxed at source at national set rates. In undertaking its legal obligation, CrowditBuildit Ltd, may withhold taxable elements of an investment return, and forward this directly to the Inland Revenue, using established accounting procedures and through official channels. CrowditBuildit Ltd cannot be held responsible or liable in any way by the investor or any agent thereof, for non-payment of any tax due required by statute.

    Role of CrowditBuildit Ltd in the Investment Agreement

    Investment return

    The Investee is liable to repay the investments to investors and pay any investment return/dividend on such investments. The Investment Contract governs the terms of all repayments including any investment return, by the investee to the investor. CrowditBuildit Ltd has no liability in respect of the repayment of investments and payment of any investment return. Invested parties will pay off their investments in full at the end of the building project as detailed in the Investment Contract. The investment return and charges due on a given investment will be agreed in advance, and will be detailed in the Investment Contract. The Investment Contract governs the payment of these amounts. All repayments paid will be made to investors with appropriate deduction of income tax. It is the investor’s responsibility to ensure all accounts are due and that they may be payable to the appropriate authorities. CrowditBuildit Ltd will not under any circumstances provide any tax or investment advice on behalf of an Investor and agreeing to these Terms & Conditions indemnifies fully CrowditBuildit Ltd and all it past, present and future subsidiaries from this responsibility.  

    Changes to the Investment Contract

    Notwithstanding any other clause in these terms, the investor agrees that, in certain (exceptional) circumstances, for example a change in expected project completion dates, and in its absolute discretion, CrowditBuildit Ltd may agree with the Investee to restructure the Investment and amend the Investment Contract and the Investor will be bound by these amendments. This will be in circumstances where it is considered that changes to an Investment Contract is in the interests of the associated building project. Where CrowditBuildit Ltd believes that an agreement to an Investment Contract is in the interests of the associated building project, the relevant investors will be notified of the amendment not less than 5 business days before making such amendment. Any changes to the Investment Contract will be made by CrowditBuildit Ltd in collaboration with the Security Trustee. The Security Trustee will act in the interests of the Investor, to maximise value of investment, and to negate Investment Risk. An investor agrees that CrowditBuildit Ltd will also be acting as agent on behalf of the investor in:
    • negotiating and agreeing amendments to the Investment Contract; and
    • negotiating and settling any dispute relating to the Investment Contract.
    The investor appoints CrowditBuildit Ltd as agent with full power to carry out amendments to the Investment Contract without the Investor’s specific agreement. The investor will then be bound by those amendments. The investor agrees and acknowledges that CrowditBuildit Ltd shall take on no liabilities, obligations or rights under the Investment Contract as a result of such agency, and agrees that the investor will continue to be solely liable and responsible for the rights and obligations under the Investment Contract (as amended) and CrowditBuildit Ltd will not be liable for any amendments to the Investment Contract.
