About

We provide transparent SIPP compliant, sustainable UK and European property investments.

 

Millbak_front_page_imageOur newly launched brand “Invest in Rooms” does what the names states.

The majority of our investment opportunities have been through a rigorous compliance process by SIPP/SSAS Trustees.  This allows pension fund holders to transfer their funds into a Self-Invested Pension Plan (SIPP)  or Small Self Administered Scheme (SSAS)

Thus enabling investors, both cash and pension fund holders, to invest in one of our property investment opportunities. Why would they do this? Pensions produce zero to 1% average return, and bank interest is circa 2% pa - our developments produce average of 10% pa over 50% ROI.

Result - a bigger pension and for cash investors far better returns than building societies or banks.

All transactions are conducted through UK lawyers. Leases are issued to investors and buy back agreements / options form part of the legal sales contract.

SIPP compliant company.

Cash investors and SIPP Investors can invest from £20,000 Investment with an average return  of 10% pa.

How can an investor receive a return that benefits them? Certainly not from a bank or building society. Shares are a risk unless you’re the broker and we ALL know property is the key.  But buying a house, renovating, dealing with builders, architects, planners and then tenants can all be a nightmare.

Will the house go up in value or could it go down? Do I need a mortgage and what about the legal costs and stamp duty? And what could you purchase for under, say £80,000, even if you could get the money.

But what if you can choose your level of investment and still get a good return. What if there is an exit strategy in place. What if your investment is secure and what if the project is SIPP compliant, which means pension funds are authorised by the SIPP Trustees to take investments into the project.

Our Team

Name:  Stuart Gibbons

Position:  Sales and Marketing Director

Academic / professional qualifications: 

  • OND Business Management

Experience and knowledge of industry:

As a Director of TLC Care Homes – Stuart was the developer for an 85 Bed care facility in Halifax. He sold his shares prior to completion. http://calderdaleretreat.com/

1985 Partner Camden Canal Market, 2000 UK Director of Praia D’EL Rey, Silver Coast Portugal, 2006, Head of Christies Great Estates UK for Portugal, Director UK Portuguese Chamber of Commerce.

With a sales and marketing background Stuart has been the innovator of a large range of travel and leisure rewards for the 100 top brands in the UK.

“Remember Hoover” Stuart was the expert witness!!

So thinking outside the box and creating market places for new and exciting concepts has been a successful formula.

Our market in Camden was originally a selection of railway arches. Our ideas on Free-Hotel Accommodation prior to the Internet helped fill hotel rooms. Free Coupons in 1999 was a little early for the net, but a great idea. And now using your pension funds to invest and build a proper not a loss making pension, plus returning cash investors with proper returns, has proven to be a successful formula.

We acted as agents then, master agents and now the principal developer, land with planning. No requirement for mortgages and no bank lending provide the platform for our success. All we do is “sell rooms” in a secure and stable environment.

Simple!
