Loan #603293 Bridging Loan for Purchase of Villa in Zutendaal, Belgium
This bridging loan is to complete the purchase of a villa in Zutendaal Belgium, more precisely it is located at Kinenhofstraat 2. The detached villa has 1,196 m2 of land and is located in a residential area. The house was built in 1991 and was completely renovated in 2016. As such it is now in perfect condition and ready to move into. Zutendaal is known as one of the greenest municipalities in Flanders, because of its location in the middle of nature, as it is located in the Hoge Kempen Park. The town is a mere 11 kilometers away from Maastricht and as such extremely popular with the Dutch. The buyer already has a tenant lined up who will pay € 1,250 rent per month, excluding costs.
Why did the buyer choose Max Crowdfund, which has a higher interest rate than a bank?
In his own words: "That's pretty straight forward: Firstly, I am not a big fan of banks, as they are institutions where you can borrow money if you can prove that you don't need it! Secondly, I only need a bridging loan for a period of up to 9 months and a bank is only interested in it if they can match someone for a much longer term."
How will the loan be repaid after the 9 months?
The purchaser still owns an apartment on the Regenboogkade in Rotterdam and this will be vacant and rent-free from November 1. At that stage he will sell the apartment. The asking price (depending on the market) will be around € 360,000 at that time, but potentially slightly more as currently the apartments in this particular complex sell for between € 375,000 and € 395,000, which can be seen from this similar flat that is for sale on Funda (https://www.funda.nl/koop/rotterdam/appartement-41198634-regenboogkade-47/).
Investors can invest in real estate backed loans from €100 or a multiple of this. NOTE that there is a 0.1% fee to make an investment. As such you need to ensure you add this 0.1% when making a transfer to ensure you can invest the amount you would like to invest, i.e. if you would like to invest €10,000, you need to transfer €10,010 to your account on Max Crowdfund.
Because of the regulations in the Netherlands:
- A maximum of €80,000 applies per individual investor in total investments made on Max Crowdfund.
- If you have a joined account this is doubled to €160,000.
- When investing a minimum of €100,000 per loan it will not be added to the total investments made on Max Crowdfund.
- Company accounts as have no limits.
Please note, that Max Crowdfund can optionally set a maximum for a single investment regardless of the above.
You will be notified in case your investment(s) exceed(s) any limit.
On the Max Crowdfund platform you have your personal Max Crowdfund Current Account. You can top your Max Crowdfund Current Account up via various payment providers such as iDeal or by bank transfer. Provided your balance is sufficient, you can start investing in loan applications immediately. The maximum deposit amount allowed differs per payment provider, but is usually a maximum of € 50,000. If you supplement your balance via a bank transfer, please use the reference provided in the description with your payment. Please note processing your bank transfer may take more than a day, which may mean you miss out on the investment opportunity.
No. Investors must be over 18 and must have an approved account, meaning their Know Your Client (KYC) documentation needs to be submitted and approved and have a bank account linked to their account. Country-specific restrictions exist and certain nationalities may be prevented from participation in some investment products. This is to prevent money laundering, tax evasion and other illegal activities, in line with our commitment to regulatory compliance and transparency.
At the moment we only accept EURO for investing in real estate backed loans. We are aiming to accept all currencies, including crypto currencies, like we do for the Max Property Group Share Certificates, but this depends on the regulators.
By Dutch law you are allowed a 24 hour cooling-off period, which means you can either change or cancel your investment during this time without any fees charged. After the cooling-off period you cannot change or cancel your investment. You are still allowed to make a second investment. Multiple investments will be combined in one when a loan is finalised.
Yes, but you will need to have a joined bank account with your partner. If you have a joined bank account, you can request to register a joined account on Max Crowdfund. Once approved, the regulatory limit for investing will be doubled to €160,000.
You can only register a new bank account by making a bank transfer of any amount from that bank account. We only accept bank accounts that are held by you and are in your name.
If you only have one bank account registered, this will automatically be your preferred account. In case you have multiple accounts registered, you can select only one of those to be the preferred account. Funds in your Max Crowdfund Current Account that are not used for a period of more than 60 days will automatically be transferred to your preferred bank account.
When the fundraiser fails to meet their obligations to make periodic payments as defined in the loan agreement, Max Crowdfund will follow up. Periodic updates will be shared to inform investors about the status of the loan. To recover from default, measures like a change of terms can be proposed, but this requires the approval from a majority of all involved investors via online voting. In the worst case scenario the Max Crowdfund Security Agent will execute on the collateral for the loan and distribute the proceeds to the investors.
