HCD3 The Woodlands, Bolton upon Dearne, South Yorkshire
New build development of 28 detached and semi-detached houses
Work on site: work commenced June 2016 and was completed July 2019.
Sales update: As of 22nd July 2020, 21 plots have completed on the sale and are occupied, 5 are reserved and sales are progressing with interest and viewings ramping up. One sale fell through a few weeks ago due to issues relating to the pandemic, but this unit very quickly resold, so there is only 1 unit left to sell.
The Coronavirus Pandemic has slowed sales down as most conveyancing firms are operating with a reduced staff as are government departments. The purchaser of one of the reserved properties is in a chain, and sellers/purchasers further down the chain are struggling to progress their sales.
Investor capital repaid to date:
Fund Raise/Phase 1- 10-12% (all phase 1 capital repaid as of 20th May 2019).
Fund Raise/Phase 2- 10% (29th May 2019 we commenced paying out phase 2 investors their capital and are continuing as sales complete. The majority of investors have now been repaid their capital).
As of April 2020 we are still working on repaying the last of Fundraise 2 investors their capital as sales complete.
Information re interest payments:
We will not be a position to pay any interest until all capital has been repaid, and all units are sold. At the moment we are working hard to progress sales, and do not yet have a timeframe for the payment of interest.
