Fractional ownership in real estate: lessons learnt when schemes go wrong
01 July 2021
Shared real estate ownership schemes have proved to be incredibly popular in recent years.
Investors are often promised high yields into properties such as student accommodation, hotels, and even car parking. However, these projects are often poorly planned, where developments prove to be nothing more than a loss-making venture with investors frequently receiving lower yields or in some cases nothing at all.
