Top frequently asked questions
When you invest, you commit to the term as specified in the information brochure. However, due to the nature of PDL loans, you may get paid back slightly earlier or slightly later than the term specified in your Key Commercial Terms. This is because, the Borrower pays you back after the senior loan is repaid, and every time they sell a property. This is standard practice for property development loans.
Due to the nature of PDL loans, close dates and commencement dates can change, meaning they can sometimes commence slightly earlier or later than anticipated. This is often due to the completion of legalities by the senior lender taking longer than anticipated and is no reflection on the Borrowing business. From a loan perspective, you will earn interest from the date of commencement and as specified in your Key Commercial Terms, so no interest will be lost. Any delays in commencement does not change the structure of the planned project as a whole. If there is a delay of completion of 4 weeks or more, we will write to you and let you know.

If your application is accepted, you will receive a further email of completion followed by your Key Commercial Terms on the relevant commencement date. If we are unable to accept your investment offer, we will contact you and let you know.
PDL loans have a strict target raise, which means the close date stated on the website is subject to change should the maximum investment be reached before this date. All applications will be processed on a first come, first served basis however, this does not guarantee that your order will be accepted if the Borrower has met the target raise.
Your funds are covered by the Financial Services Compensation Scheme (FSCS) while Crowdstacker holds your money, processes funds, and services your client account. Once your funds are lent to the borrower, the FSCS protection ends and the investment security package takes effect. Crowdstacker does not have a provision or contingency fund.
