Landbay is a company that facilitates peer-to-peer lending platform for residential buy-to-let mortgages.[1][2]

Company overview[edit]

Landbay runs an online peer-to-peer lending platform where investors can invest in the United Kingdom's buy-to-let mortgage market. The business model matches investors' funds to buy-to-let mortgages, thus all loans are secured by residential real estate. [3][4] When the company launched, both Landbay worked with both individual and institutional lenders, however in 2019 Landbay stopped allowing individual investors to use its services.[5][6]

As at February 2015 Landbay is the fastest growing peer-to-peer platform in the United Kingdom[7] and as of March 2015 the business was lending £2m per month.

The company was founded by John Goodall and Gray Stern.[8][9]

In March 2015 the business was named in the Everline Future 50 as one of the most disruptive startups in the UK.[10]

Landbay is a member of the P2P Finance Association.[11] Landbay is also a member of the Council of Mortgage Lenders.[citation needed]

Landbay is regulated by the FCA Financial Conduct Authority.[12]
