The Plan

  • The developer, Housestyle Countrywide Limited, is an award-winning developer in Warwickshire.
  • The team have over 15 years experience and are experts in identifying and executing high-quality schemes
  • The developer purchased the site conditional upon achieving planning permission in 2016.  After achieving permission they have completed construction of the multi-unit scheme, Farrier's Way, and have already completed sales on six of the nine homes.
  • Farrier's way benefits from charming countryside views and purchasers have the option to purchase additional land to increase their garden. The Redbook Valuation confirms that Farrier's Way has been completed to a high specification that is superior to the competing schemes in the area. This has lead to the existing sales achieving higher sales values than forecast.
  • Your investment will refinance the existing debt on the remaining three homes as well as provide an equity release to the developer for their other projects.
  • Your investment will be secured by a first ranking legal charge over the three homes and shares of the developer. Your capital and accrued returns will be repaid from the sales proceeds of the first two homes.

The final sales value would need to fall by more than 37% in order for your capital and accrued returns to be at risk.

Investment Structure

  • A new subsidiary company of CapitalRise, CR Lighthorne PLC, has been incorporated to issue bonds to investors. CR Lighthorne PLC will use the proceeds of these bonds from investors to provide funds to the developer that will refinance the existing debt and provide an equity release for the developer's other projects 
  • Your investment is ring-fenced because CR Lighthorne PLC will not carry on any other commercial activity. The directors of this company will (through CapitalRise) administer and enforce the terms of the bonds issued by CR Lighthorne PLC.
  • The investment is structured as deep discounted bonds . The bonds will be issued at a discount to the nominal amount and (if sufficient proceeds are generated from the sale of the property) at the point of redemption of the bonds, investors will receive proceeds equal to the issue price of the bonds and a return equivalent to 8.0% per annum, compounded annually.
  • CR Lighthorne PLC is the beneficiary of a first legal charge. In any forced sale of the property, investors will recover their capital and accrued interest first, before the developer 
  • CR Lighthorne PLC is not required to withhold UK income tax on this investment and so returns will be paid gross. Income tax may be payable by investors on any return on the investments unless you invest via your CapitalRise ISA. Investors should take their own tax advice from an appropriately qualified professional.


As with all investments you should carefully consider the key risks involved which include:

Risks How this applies to you
Capital and Income Risk – Your capital is at risk and the income is not guaranteed.

CR Lighthorne PLC has the benefit of a first legal charge against the property. This means in the event that the developer cannot repay your capital and accrued return CapitalRise, on behalf of investors,  will be able to force the sale of the property and will recover any amounts due first. However, the outcome is uncertain and there is a risk that the full amount due may not be recovered.

Investment Liquidity Risk – You need to be prepared to hold this investment for the full term. We help you try to sell your investment if you want to exit early but this may be difficult and a sale is not guaranteed.
Sales Rates Risk – Sales rates may be slower than forecast and/or the properties may sell for less.

Your investment provides for a 12 month sales period. Farrier's Way was completed in Q4 2017 and within 5 months 66% of the homes sold and settled. 

The homes values would need to drop by at least 37% in order for your capital and accrued return to be at risk. 

The first six homes that have sold in Farrier's Way achieved on average a final sales price 10% above the Redbook Valuation 

Compensation Scheme – The Financial Services Compensation Scheme does not cover poor investment performance.

You cannot claim compensation if your investment does not perform as expected, unless it results from us or Gallium not discharging our obligations to you. The FSCS would cover amounts owed to our customers in the event of our insolvency, up to a maximum of £50,000 per customer.

Contingency - If during the due diligence period the borrower does not meet our high underwriting standards the investment opportunity will not progress  

The Issuer has not committed to issuing the Bonds and will not do so unless and until CapitalRise completes due diligence on the underlying transaction to its satisfaction. No interest will be paid on your subscription unless and until it is invested into Bonds. If the Bond issuance does not proceed, we will return your funds to you.
