Last Updated: January 2021

Reap is a property platform that allows people to invest into buy-to-let properties across the UK. Rather than investing directly into one buy-to-let property, with Reap your investment can be spread among several properties in different areas.
The ethical component comes from Reap often letting their properties to people in receipt of Local Housing Allowance or Universal Credit. They have a very good relationship with their tenants; 100% say that they are ‘very satisfied’ with Reap as a landlord and believe their rent to be a ‘fair rent’.
Reap offer a fixed return of 3% per annum if you invest between £15,000- £24,999; 4% per annum for £25,000- £49,999; and 5% per annum for £50,000+.
