This Insight Report explores the development of Property-based P2P lending and its application for SME finance. Businesses can utilise Property-focused P2P loans to secure finance against an existing property or to purchase and/or enhanceproperty. Although there are other P2P property focused facilities (eg. Buy-to-Let finance), we focus here on how SME borrowers can use P2P platforms to leverage their property, be it for property purchase or capital release. For the purpose of this report, we will deal exclusively with those who seek property finance for commercially relevant property and not for primary residence.
