    In 2013, LendInvest was spun out of Montello, a specialist short-term property finance business which launched in 2008. To date we have funded over £1 billion of loans, helping property investors and developers to buy, build or renovate more than 3,000 homes around the UK.

  • Why do people borrow through LendInvest and not traditional means of finance?

    Short-term property finance is a popular form of funding for professional property investors, landlords and developers that need to move quickly to secure a purchase, release funds to move onto the next stage of their property project or finance small-scale housing developments. This sort of funding is typically unavailable at the required speed with traditional lenders.

  • What is the relationship between LendInvest and LendInvest Capital?

    LendInvest Capital is a division of LendInvest that deals with alternative investment funds. It houses LendInvest Funds Management Limited, which manages the funds available for investment via the platform (as well as a discretionary fund which is now closed to new investors).
