How does it work? This is Nester’s Deal Journey
Nester Receives Finance Application
Buyers approach Nester seeking finance for a property acquisition, refurbishment, or refinance.
All transactions are reviewed by a team of property professionals with decades experience and processed through a scorecard built with robust underwriting standards.
Once a deal has progressed through the screening process and is supported by a team member, it is presented to credit committee for approval. An additional independent check performed by a separate Nester team.
Once approved the deal goes live on the Nester platform and becomes available for approved investors to invest into. Each deal summary includes the due diligence performed by the Nester team and documentation available to download.
Pre-funding & Investing
Nester works with pre-funding partners who have committed to providing the funds to complete a property financing for the buyer. All pre-funded amounts remain available for investment into approved investors.
Nester continues to regularly review all and monitor transaction and will provide regular updates for investors. The buyer pays the return on each financing along with the full settlement at the end of the agreed term.
How we review our deals
We rigorously review all deals and the majority are rejected. We only select those that we would be comfortable in supporting. Our review, or due diligence, consider the numbers as well as the quality of the transaction in accordance with our credit policy that has been reviewed by the FCA. These aspects and more are included in our assessment, a summary of which is presented to our Nesters to help you decide which opportunity to invest in.

This security will always include a first fixed legal charge over the property being financed, as well as other security and/or guarantees depending on the credit analysis.
How we measure our Risk Score
We’ve created a risk scoring algorithm to further assist our investors. Results from the due diligence process are put into a scorecard that calculates a rating. There is a spectrum as summarised below with the lowest score reflecting the highest risk that Nester would support and the highest score reflecting a lower risk. Risk scores are provided as a guide only. They are not an absolute measure and your capital is at risk. It is recommended that you seek independent financial advice.
‘A’ rated financings score highly in the majority of due diligence categories.
‘B’ rated financings score highly in some of the due diligence categories.
‘C’ rated financings meets Nester’s minimum financing criteria.
