How to Start a Self-managed Property Investment Syndicate

  • If you are a property investor, then a syndicate or SPV structure can help you to multiply your spending power by enabling other people you know to co-invest with you.
  • If you are a property agent, then a syndicate or SPV structure can help you to generate additional property-related fees, by unlocking additional capital from your existing clients and contacts.

Whatever your position, you need a tried-and-tested structure that you can clearly communicate to prospective investors. You’ll also want clarity on the costs of establishing and running the structure, so that you can put together a fully costed plan for your investors to approve.
