Recent Visit to The West Chevington farm: Progress and Future Plans

New Capital Link, was delighted to visit our exclusive investment opportunity West Chevington Farm in Northumberland. It was exciting and energising for the NCL Team to see such fantastic progress. In July 2022, The West Chevington Farm welcomed its first residents into their new homes and we were fortunate to speak with them directly and hear about their positive experience since settling in.

The Farm is now looking forward to Phase 2 of the development

 

West Chevington farm: A Brief Introduction

These are meticulously crafted, sustainably built luxurious converted barns and outbuildings, situated at a National Heritage listed Georgian-era Farm in Northumberland.

Designed with care and expertise, the development has 21 beautiful properties comprising 9 barn conversions and 12 newly built homes.

 

 

Strategic Plan

The West Chevington farm Project was perceived as a profitable investment due to the high demand for extravagant and exclusive homes in a country area. The Project aims to generate £4m for Phase 1 and a GDV of £3.0m for Phase 2. Margin £2.0m (29%), exclusive of banking or finance charges. On completion, there will also be approved re-financing of properties to repay investors.

 

End Goals

The ultimate goal is to cater to these wonderful farms to people who are willing to invest in these properties for better living standards. There will also be approved re-financing of properties to repay investors.

Due to the potential for losses, the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) considers this investment to be very complex and high risk.

What are the key risks?

1. You could lose all the money you invest

If the business offering this investment fails, there is a high risk that you will lose all your money. Businesses like this often fail as they usually use risky investment strategies. 

Advertised rates of return aren’t guaranteed. This is not a savings account. If the issuer doesn’t pay you back as agreed, you could earn less money than expected or nothing at all. A higher advertised rate of return means a higher risk of losing your money. If it looks too good to be true, it probably is.

These investments are sometimes held in an Innovative Finance ISA (IFISA). While any potential gains from your investment will be tax free, you can still lose all your money. An IFISA does not reduce the risk of the investment or protect you from losses.

2. You are unlikely to be protected if something goes wrong

The business offering this investment is not regulated by the FCA. Protection from the Financial Services Compensation Scheme (FSCS) only considers claims against failed regulated firms. Learn more about FSCS protection here. https://www.fscs.org.uk/what-we-cover/investments/ or

Protection from the Financial Services Compensation Scheme (FSCS), in relation to claims against failed regulated firms, does not cover poor investment performance. Try the FSCS investment protection checker here. https://www.fscs.org.uk/check/investment-protection-checker/

The Financial Ombudsman Service (FOS) will not be able to consider complaints related to this firm or Protection from the Financial Ombudsman Service (FOS) does not cover poor investment performance. If you have a complaint against an FCA-regulated firm, FOS may be able to consider it. Learn more about FOS protection here. https://www.financial-ombudsman.org.uk/consumers

3. You are unlikely to get your money back quickly

This type of business could face cash-flow problems that delay interest payments. It could also fail altogether and be unable to repay investors their money. 

You are unlikely to be able to cash in your investment early by selling it. You are usually locked in until the business has paid you back over the period agreed. In the rare circumstances where it is possible to sell your investment in a ‘secondary market’, you may not find a buyer at the price you are willing to sell.

4. This is a complex investment

This investment has a complex structure based on other risky investments. A business that raises money like this lends it to, or invests it in, other businesses or property. This makes it difficult for the investor to know where their money is going.

This makes it difficult to predict how risky the investment is, but it will most likely be high.

You may wish to get financial advice before deciding to invest.

5. Don’t put all your eggs in one basket

Putting all your money into a single business or type of investment for example, is risky. Spreading your money across different investments makes you less dependent on any one to do well. 

A good rule of thumb is not to invest more than 10% of your money in high-risk investments. https://www.fca.org.uk/investsmart/5-questions-ask-you-invest
