Questions you might have

Here's our top five most asked questions

How much can I invest?

We do not have a maximum amount you can credit to your account. The maximum amount of investment you could make to a project is 100% of the required loan, however it is unlikely you would achieve this owing to the current demand for our projects. There is no minimum investment amount. Funds that you credit to your account but are not committed to a project can be withdrawn at any time.

What return can I expect?

Once you have invested in a project and the borrower begins servicing interest (typically once funds are drawn down) you will begin earning up to 12% annual interest on your capital immediately depending on the project that you have invested in. You will begin to earn interest when the loan is marked as “live’ and is shown under the Live Loans page here.

Interest is credited to your account in arrears on the first working day of each month.

When will my original investment be returned?

Your initial investment and any outstanding interest are credited to your account when the loan is fully repaid. The typical loan term is 6 months, however borrowers can repay the loan before the agreed end date. Once the loan is repaid in full we ensure your funds are returned immediately, allowing you to withdraw the balance or commit to new loans.

Please note that delays in loan repayments are a routine part of the process, and can often mean nothing at all as regards the final repayment of the loan. Delays can be caused by slow completion of a property sale, a refinance with a bank, by complications with planning permission, or by any number of other minor issues. Both borrowers and lenders in the market understand that delays happen regularly, and price that in accordingly.

To allow for this, Lendy has a 180-day tolerance period once a loan term comes to an end. This is to allow borrowers time to deal with these unavoidable delays and make repayments. Please see here for more information when Lendy deems a loan to be non-performing. Please do also refer to our Collections and Recovery Policy here.

What happens to my money?

When you open an account with Lendy you can choose to invest in any loans, subject to availability. On making an investment you are expected to arrange for Lendy to receive cleared funds within 2 working days, after which Lendy has discretion to cancel the loanpart allocated to you should it so wish. Funds not invested in a loan will be held in the Lendy Client Bank Account with Barclays Bank PLC. Interest is not paid on any such balances. When the loan is drawn down, all relevant funds are then transferred out of the Lendy Client Bank Account and passed to the Borrower or their solicitors.

Where is the risk?

We make every effort to minimise the risks for our investors and to ensure, where possible, that all investments are repaid in full and on time. In the event that a loan becomes non-performing we have the following protection in place:

  • All loans are secured with a legal charge (mortgage), which means the property can be sold if the loan becomes non-performing.
  • Loans do not exceed a maximum of 70% of the Open Market Value. This means that if the borrower cannot repay the loan it is highly likely that we will be able to recoup all funds from the sale of the security property, as there is a substantial amount of equity.
  • In the unlikely event that we are unable to recoup all the funds from the sale of the security we maintain a discretionary Provision Fund to allow us to compensate investors should there be a shortfall in the capital.

We feel it is important to make you aware that with investing your capital is at risk and interest payments are not guaranteed if a loan becomes non-performing, however we feel confident that we have a thorough and robust system in place to protect all Lendy investors.
