Answers

1.

The Thames Property Nest Eggs model specifically dictates that the syndicate members themselves are in full control of all the decisions that effect their 'Nest Egg' syndicate, and its property. This 'investor-controlled' modus operandi is transparent and continuous throughout the lifespan of every 'Nest Egg'. No decisions are ever made on behalf of syndicate members by Thames Property Nest Eggs, and its role therefore is purely to source properties for approval by syndicate members, to facilitate the administration of syndicate companies, and to act in accordance with the instructions of syndicate members. The whole 'Nest Egg' process is also managed and supervised under the direct and independent auspices of Moore Stephens Accountants and Royds Withy King Solicitors, both of whom practice within the parameters of rigorous regulatory requirements.

Thames Property Nest Eggs Ltd is not regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority, and is not required to as it does not provide financial advice, and makes no decisions on behalf of investors. Thames Property Nest Eggs Ltd is a service provision only, providing administrative, coordination and management services to groups of investors, who come together to invest in property. Thames Property Nest Eggs Ltd therefore acts only under the instructions of each syndicate of investors, and has no voting rights, executive powers or beneficial interests in any syndicate ‘Nest Egg’ investment.

Yes, but anyone who is not a UK resident must satisfy themselves that they are complying with the laws of their own country before they advance any funds.

3.

Yes, if you choose to do so, but we will need the company registration certificate and ID for the shareholders and directors.

In the case of ‘Fast Track Nest Eggs’ and ‘Classic Nest Eggs,’ 5% of the ’Nest Egg' funds are always held in reserve as a safety-net, contingency fund. This protects investors against the need for ‘top-up’ funds within the life-cycle of a ‘Nest Egg’.
With ‘Off-Plan Nest Eggs’ there are 2 possible scenarios:
a. If the property is sold prior to completion, then no further funds are required, after the initial deposit is paid by the investor group
b. If the property is not sold prior to completion, then the investor group will need to complete on the purchase.

5.

For ‘Fast Track and Classic Nest Eggs’ our sourcing strategy is to cash-purchase properties in need of modernisation... anywhere inside the M25.
For ‘Off-Plan Nest Eggs’ our sourcing strategy focusses on new developments inside the M25, and significantly, developments with at least a 2 years lead-in time before completion and also the contractual ability to sell prior to completion.

6.

In the case of a 'Classic Nest Egg'(5 years hold), this is entirely within the control of each syndicate. Generally, at 5/6 years from purchase completion and on instruction from the 'Nest Egg' syndicate, the 'Nest Egg' property is marketed to be sold by Thames Property Nest Eggs. The property is advertised for sale on the open market at a price determined by 2 independent valuations. 100% of net profits from the sale, plus 5 years of net rental income held in the 'Nest Egg' bank account, is distributed to the 10 shareholders. At the point of 'Nest Egg' property sale, the 'Nest Egg' company is dissolved.

In the case of a 'Fast Track Nest Egg', the sales process is exactly the same but is triggered immediately the property refurbishment in completed.
With ‘Off-Plan Nest Eggs’ if the market conditions are favourable, the investors may opt to sell the property prior to completion.
If the investors decide to hang onto the property and rent it out for a few years before selling, this will generate an annual dividend/income.

7.

Thames Property Nest Eggs acts independently of the 'Nest Egg' company and simply provides property and administration services to the syndicate of investors, subsequently implementing the syndicate decisions as part of the service-level agreement. The syndicate members therefore remain 100% beneficial owners of the property via their shareholding in the 'Nest Egg' company, and the interests of the syndicate members are therefore protected and ring-fenced.

8.

Yes, 'Nest Egg' companies are able to accept investment from SIPPs and similar pension vehicles. It is up to you to take advice from your financial adviser and/or pension provider on whether that would be suitable for you.

Yes. We also offer the opportunity to invest in a bespoke 'Solo Nest Egg'. In this model there is just one investor who owns 100% of the 'Nest Egg' shares... is 100% in control of all decisions... and takes 100% of all net profits from rent, and 100% of all net profits from capital growth. Again, we provide the expertise and guidance, and do all the legwork.
