2.4. All money held pending allocation to a successful Borrower will not accrue interest.

2.5 When you agree to these terms and conditions you will not become a Lender. You will become a Lender only when you have completed the full Lender registration process. We will confirm your acceptance as a Lender by email. When we have confirmed you as a Lender, we will provide you with access to a user account that will allow you to lend subject to these Terms and Conditions. Where you lend, these terms will apply to authorise the entry into the Loan Agreement on your behalf.

2.6. You will be able to view loans which are available to invest in before you complete the Lender registration process. These Terms and Conditions will apply whether or not you have completed the Lender registration process.

2.7. Your acceptance as a Lenders will be subject to approval by Sourced or any third parties acting for us. This includes (but is not limited to) Goji and Modulr, whose details are provided in Section 14 of this document.

3. User Access Security

3.1. Where you are accepted as a Lender, you must provide us with a current (and ensure it remains up to date) – email address; physical mailing address and contact telephone number. You must also designate a password for your user account which you agree to keep secure and not share with any third party.

4. Loan Application Review and Pledges Process

4.1. The platform provides access to loan applications which you may consider.

4.2. All loan applications will be subjected to levels of assessment by Sourced Capital, details of this can be seen on our website via Assessing Risk | Sourced Capital (snapstaging.co.uk).

4.3. You will be able to review a Borrower’s application (a “Loan Offering”) whilst your user account is open and place an offer of funding (a “Pledge”), which is subject to the minimum pledge amount of £1,000.

4.4. A Pledge is made by selecting the “Invest Now” button for a Loan Offering via your user account. Pledges will be applied on a ‘first-come-first-served’ basis. The Pledges will be received and determined in chronological order of receipt by Sourced Capital. In certain cases, Lenders may not be successful in funding a loan due to sufficient Pledges having already been received in relation to a particular loan from other lenders.

4.5. Before you select the “Invest Now” button you should review the lending documents which you are agreeing to enter. By clicking the “Invest Now” button you agree:

4.5.1 that if your Pledge is successful, you will be bound by the terms proposed for the Loan Offering;

4.5.2 that you will transfer monies to us to cover your Pledge;

4.5.3 that you authorise Sourced Capital to act as your agent in entering the Loan Agreement documents and does so for and on your behalf on the terms of the Security Trust Deed which shall apply.

4.6. All Loan Offerings must be achieved in full. Partially funded loans will not be completed or drawn down.

4.7. Once the Loan Offering amount is achieved, the Pledge process is closed and all successful Lenders are notified.

4.8. Where you are notified that you have made a successful Pledge you are deemed to immediately and irrevocably authorise the Security Trustee to agree for you to become a party to the Loan Agreement subject to the Borrower fulfilling its obligations.

4.9. Once you make a Pledge you agree it cannot be withdrawn, that the Security Trustee has your authority to enter the Loan Agreement and if the Loan Offering is successful you (via the agency of the Security Trustee) will enter the required Loan Agreement unless:

4.9.1. the Pledge process resulted in an over-subscription and your Pledge was not successful; or

4.9.2. the Loan Offering was not fully funded; or

4.9.3. the Borrower declines the offer or fails to complete the loan.

4.10. By making a pledge, you agree to the account administration procedures as detailed in Section 14 of this document.

5. The Security Trustee

5.1. Given the way in which the Pledge process operates and the possibility that a loan might involve many Lenders, it is not practical for each Lender to sign each Loan Agreement or Security Document. We have therefore made arrangements for an independent company to act as Security Trustee and agent and sign documentation on behalf of each Lender when a loan is made. This also has the secondary effect of keeping the identity of Lenders confidential.

5.2. As a Lender you appoint the Security Trustee on the terms of the Security Trust Deed to act as your agent in connection with any loan. You agree that you will not take any action or commence any process against any Borrower in your own name but will act only through the Security Trustee who shall be entitled to act as provided for in these Terms and Conditions.

5.3. The Security Trustee’s duties under the Loan Agreement and Security Documents are solely administrative in nature. The Security Trustee has no obligations beyond those of an agent of any kind to any party under or in connection with the Loan Agreement.

5.4. You authorise the Security Trustee to exercise the rights, powers, authorities and discretions specifically given to the Security Trustee under or in connection with the documents together with any other incidental rights, powers, authorities and discretions.

5.5. You agree that the Security Trustee will hold the benefit of any security created on trust for all of the Lenders involved in the related loan.

5.6. The Security Trustee shall forward to each Lender electronic copies of any documents requested or copies of any documents which are delivered to the Security Trustee. The Security Trustee is not obliged to review or check the adequacy, accuracy or completeness of any documents it forwards to a Lender. This is the Borrower’s responsibility.

5.7. If the Security Trustee receives notification of a Default or Event of Default (as defined in any Loan Agreement) it shall promptly notify the Lenders which are involved in that particular loan.

5.8. If the Security Trustee is aware of a default in the payment of any principal, interest or fee payable to a Lender it shall promptly notify the Lenders involved in that particular loan.

5.9. The Security Trustee may rely on any representation, notice or documents believed by it to be genuine, correct and appropriately authorised and any statement made by a director, authorised signatory or employee of any person regarding any matters which may reasonably be assumed to be within his knowledge or within his power to verify.

5.10. The Security Trustee may engage, pay for and rely on the advice or services of any lawyers, accountants, surveyors or other experts, providing it has the means to pay for such services. The Security Trustee will decide the method of underwriting such costs before any are incurred and, in most circumstances, the costs will be met by the relevant Borrower.

5.11. The Security Trustee may act in relation to the Loan Agreement and the Security Documents through its personnel and agents.

5.12. The Security Trustee shall have absolute discretion in the exercise of any right, power or authority vested in it as Security Trustee and agent in accordance with the terms of the Loan Agreement and any Security Documents.

5.13. Each Lender authorises the Security Trustee to act or refrain from acting in respect of:

5.13.1 day to day management of the loan including, without limitation, dealing with drawdown notices, certificates of compliance and the provision of financial information from the Borrower in accordance with the Loan Agreement;

5.13.2 answering any questions raised by the Borrower;

5.13.3 administration relating to late payments due under the Loan Agreement by the issuing of standard letters; and

5.13.4 amending the terms of the any documents providing such amendments are not to the interest rate payable, the term of the loan, the repayment schedule or the security to be granted.

6. Loan Drawdown

6.1. After a Pledge is made and lending confirmed, Lenders who have made a successful. Pledge will transfer their pledged amount until required for drawdown by the Borrower.

6.2. Once the Loan Agreement and Security Documents are executed and received by Sourced Capital from the Security Trustee (for the Lenders) and the Borrower, and relevant arrangement fees paid by the Borrower, the loan will be drawn down. This can be drawn down to the Borrower’s solicitor for completion of the purchase or drawdown following a monitoring report from an independent surveyor through the build programme subject to security trustee approval.

6.3. After a pledge is made, you will be presented with information indicating how to transfer funds into your Platform Account. We will only transfer funds back to the bank account from which they came except by special arrangement and having first satisfied ourselves that the reasons for the request are reasonable and legal.

6.4. You are agreeing to the terms detailed in Section 14 of this document relating to your Platform Account.

7. Lender Fees

7.1. No fees are payable to register as a Lender or to pledge to contribute to a loan application. All costs in relation to the credit assessment process are paid by the Borrower. Whilst there is no anticipation that this will ever change, Sourced reserves the right to charge a Lender Fee.

8. Interest Rates

8.1. Interest rates are fixed at the outset and remain for the term of the loan. The interest rate is calculated based on each individual application.

8.2. Interest rates may change from time to time in line with market conditions. Any change in interest rates will not affect loans already drawn down or in the process of review.

8.3. Interest on sums you have provided under a Loan Agreement will be earned from the date the loan is drawn down and not from the date the pledging has closed.

9. Interest and Capital Repayment Process

9.1. The repayment schedule is set out in the Loan Agreement.

9.2. Repayment of each Lender’s loaned amount and interest payable will be credited to the Lender’s Platform Account with us upon receipt from the Borrower.

9.3. Only amounts remitted by Borrowers will be credited to each Lender’s Platform Account; if a Borrower’s repayment is missed then no funds will be allocated the to the Lender’s account.

9.4. Any partial repayments received will be paid to Lender’s Platform Account. We retain the right to allocate partial repayments to either principal or accrued interest first.

9.5. All repayments in respect of interest will be made on a gross basis i.e. without the deduction of income tax but less any fee payable. It is up to Lenders to declare the interest they have earned.

10. Missed Repayments and Loans Default

10.1. Lending money comes with its risks and you acknowledge that whilst we and the Security Trustee will make every reasonable effort to collect missed payments and to ensure full repayment there will be cases where this is not possible.

10.2. Where a Borrower misses a payment or makes only a partial repayment, we, the Security Trustee or an agent acting on our behalf, will contact the Borrower to collect the due payment.

10.3. If a Borrower makes a proposal that differs to the original loan terms, the Security Trustee will liaise with Lenders in keeping with the wording of the Security Trust documentation.

10.4. If a loan falls into default, we or the Security Trustee will take whatever actions are deemed appropriate to protect the Lender’s position. That can include instructing agents to collect the whole loan amount and any associated costs.

11. Security and Recovery of Debts

11.1. If the Security Trustee and debt collection agency has failed to collect the loan outstanding the Security Trustee will enforce the security held to secure and recover the loan.

11.2. Where there is security in support of a loan, you accept that the enforceability of the security shall be on the basis of normal legal risks, challenges and limitations that you may face.

11.3. You acknowledge that there is a risk of losing amounts loaned, and subsequent interest, if a Borrower fails to keep up repayments.

11.4. We perform an administrative role in bringing Lenders and Borrowers together and to assist in facilitating making loans and collecting repayments. By acting on your behalf you acknowledge that we accept no liability for any outstanding Borrower payments. Lenders acknowledge that they will continue to be liable for and responsible for the rights and obligations under the Loan Agreement.

12. Ending Your Participation

12.1. If you no longer wish to be a Lender, and you have no loans currently outstanding, then you should inform us and we will remove your details from our live customer database and close your account. We may hold your data for up to 6 years after this where that is necessary to meet our regulatory requirements.

12.2. If you have outstanding loans, you must let the loans run to their maturity date.

12.3. We may terminate your participation as a Lender in respect of new loan applications for any reason. This may, but not exclusively, include:

12.3.1. any breach by you in these Terms and Conditions or Loan Agreement

12.3.2. you are suspected of committed fraud, money laundering or other criminal activities

12.3.3. any activity which could bring our reputation and that of other Lenders into disrepute

12.4. If Sourced are required to terminate your participation as a Lender for new applications for any legal reasons (including suspicions of fraud, money laundering or criminal activities), you are agreeing that Sourced may not be able to distribute or release funds to you from your Platform Accounts until such time as approval from the appropriate authorities has been provided to Sourced.

“Pension Account” means your account on the Platform for cash and investments held within a SSAS or SIPP wrapper.

“Platform Accounts” means your IFISA Account, Pension Account and Regular Investment Account.

“Regular Investment Account” means your account on the Platform for cash and investments not held in a tax wrapper.

14.1. Your Money

14.1.1. If we accept your application, we will provide you with account details into which you can transfer money to fund loans. These accounts are administered by Goji as follows:

14.1.1.1. For investments in your Regular Investment Account and/or your Pension Account, through the use of an e-money account operated by a third party payments provider (the “Payments Provider”) which have been appointed by Goji. At present, the Payments Provider is Modulr and Goji is the registered agent of Modulr for the provision of payment services.

14.1.1.2. For investments in your IFISA Account, through the use of a client money account operated by a regulated “Custodian.” At present, the Custodian is Goji, who will be the manager of your ISA and is authorised by HM Revenue & Customs to do so.

14.1.2. Cash transfers into your Regular Investment and IFISA Accounts must be made by electronic transfer from a bank account in your name, details of which you have provided / will provide as part of your application, or any replacement account owned by you which you notify us of in future (your “Nominated Account”). Withdrawals from your Regular Investment and IFISA Accounts will only be made to your Nominated Account.

14.1.3. Transfers into your Pension Account must be made by electronic transfer via your pension administrator, details of which you have provided / will provide as part of your application. Withdrawals from your Pension Account will only be made to your pension administrator. If there has been a change of administrator, we will need sight and satisfaction with documentary evidence of the same.

14.1.4. Transfers in from and out to another ISA manage from your IFISA Account must be conducted in keeping with section 14.3 below.

14.1.5. You authorise us to instruct Goji and/or the Payments Provider to transfer any money it holds for you in the Platform Accounts to another provider without seeking your express instruction to do so, provided the new provider has the appropriate regulatory permissions.

14.1.6. No interest is payable on money held in your Platform Accounts and no fees are charged in respect of establishing the accounts.

14.1.7. You agree to appoint the Custodian to hold any monies paid into your IFISA Account, including funds deposited by you to fund loans and money paid to you by the borrower.

14.1.8. The Custodian will treat you as its client and will treat money in your IFISA Account as “Client Money” held in an approved bank account in accordance with the FCA’s client money rules. The Custodian will use reasonable skill and care for the selection, use and monitoring of any approved bank with which Client Money is held, but will not be liable for their acts or their insolvency.

14.1.9. The Client Money will be held in a pooled account and will not be separately identifiable from Client Money of other clients of the Custodian or its associates on the relevant bank’s books and records. Accordingly, should the Custodian default on its obligations to its clients, any shortfall in Client Money held by the relevant bank may be shared pro-rata among all clients whose money is held in the pooled client money account.

14.1.10. If a bank with which the Custodian holds Client Money fails (including the appointment of a liquidator, receiver, administrator, or trustee in bankruptcy, or any equivalent), this will constitute a secondary pooling event under the FCA Rules, which may result in a shortfall in the funds held for you.

14.1.11. In the event of our insolvency, the Custodian will continue to hold your money, but will not facilitate the funding of any new loans. The Custodian will notify you of any changes to how your account will be managed in such an event.

14.1.12. In the event of the Custodian’s insolvency, we will attempt to find an alternative services provider to enable the Platform to continue to function.

14.1.13. If a Client Money balance remains unclaimed and there has been no movement on the balance for a period of at least six years (ignoring any payments or receipts of charges, interest or similar items), provided the Custodian has taken reasonable steps to trace the client and return the balance, the Custodian may cease to treat the money as Client Money and pay the Client Money to a registered charity of the Custodian’s choice.

14.1.14. Your Regular Investment and Pension Accounts will be e-money accounts and any funds in them will be owned by you and will not therefore be treated as Client Money. You are appointing us as your agent to open and operate the account on your behalf.

14.1.15. The Payments Provider will hold money in your Regular Investment and Pension Accounts separately from its own money in accordance with its terms and conditions and it will exercise due skill, care and diligence in the selection, appointment and periodic review of any credit institution or bank where your money is deposited and for the arrangements for holding your money. Neither we nor it shall be otherwise responsible for any acts, omissions or default of any such credit institution or bank.

14.2. Opening an Innovative Finance ISA

14.2.1. Your Individual Savings Account will be managed by Goji and will be an Innovative Finance ISA (IFISA). As the ISA manager, Goji undertakes to:

14.2.1.1. treat you as its client;

14.2.1.2. receive payments in respect of your loans and credit those payments to your IFISA Account; and

14.2.1.3. exercise, or facilitate the exercise of, your rights in respect of loans held in your IFISA Account if necessary, and you appoint Goji as your agent to do anything required on your behalf to enable it to fulfil those undertakings.

14.2.2. In normal circumstances, Goji does not charge any fees to you for opening and operating your IFISA Account, however if we do not pay fees due to Goji and you require the continued provision of the ISA management services, you agree to pay Goji’s fees and charges and consent to Goji deducting amounts from your IFISA Account for the purposes of paying such fees.

14.2.3. The management of your IFISA Account will be subject to the ISA Regulations. Any changes made by HMRC to the ISA Regulations that affect these terms will apply as soon as they come into effect.

14.2.4. You must be (and remain) the sole legal and beneficial owner of any cash and/or investments in your IFISA Account and you must not at any point use any cash and/or investments in your IFISA Account as security for a loan.

14.2.5. We will inform you if your IFISA Account has or will lose its tax exemption through any failure to meet the ISA Regulations. If an investment which was previously allowed under the ISA Regulations ceases to be allowed, we will notify you and make arrangements to transfer it out of the account.

14.2.6. You may subscribe to an ISA in any tax year (i.e. period starting on 6 April of one year and ending 5 April of the following year) for which you are either resident and ordinarily resident in the United Kingdom; or, although non-resident in the United Kingdom, perform duties of a Crown employee which are treated as being performed in the United Kingdom, or are the spouse or civil partner of such a person.

14.2.7. You must inform us immediately if you are no longer a UK resident or cease to perform duties of a Crown employee which are treated as being performed in the United Kingdom, or cease to be the spouse or civil partner of such a person.

14.2.8. When you open an IFISA Account we will ask you to make a declaration. Making this declaration will allow you to subscribe for an IFISA in the tax year that you make the declaration and for each subsequent tax year, provided you make a subscription to your IFISA every tax year. If you do not make a subscription to your IFISA one year then when you next want to subscribe to your IFISA, you will have to make a new declaration.

14.2.9. You must inform us if any declarations or confirmations you have made about your eligibility to hold an ISA no longer apply.

14.2.10. In accordance with the ISA Regulations, you are not eligible to apply if you have already subscribed to another IFISA in the same tax year, or if you have already subscribed the maximum available allowance to a Cash ISA and/or Stocks and Shares ISA, in the same tax year as you are applying for this IFISA. These restrictions do not apply if you are:

14.2.10.1. transferring an existing IFISA from another ISA Provider to the IFISA (in circumstances where this is permitted under the ISA Regulations), or

14.2.10.2. where you have already subscribed the maximum allowance to a cash and/or stocks and shares ISA and this is transferred to this Innovative Finance ISA.

14.2.11. All subscriptions to your IFISA must be in cash. You can transfer cash held in your Regular Investment Account to your IFISA Account, but you cannot transfer loans which have already been funded.

14.2.12. If funds are subscribed into your IFISA Account which exceed the amount prescribed in the ISA Regulations, then the excess subscription will be transferred to your Regular Investment Account.

14.2.13. Your IFISA will be flexible as defined in the ISA Regulations. This flexibility means cash which is withdrawn can be replaced, in whole or part, within the same tax year and this will not affect your ISA subscription limit for that year.

14.2.14. If you have any questions, doubts or issues relating to ISAs or your eligibility to hold an ISA, you should consult the HMRC website (https://www.gov.uk/government/organisations/hm-revenue-customs) or contact them directly.

14.3. Transfers In and Out of Your IFISA

14.3.1. You may transfer money into your IFISA from an existing ISA with another provider, in cash only. An online transfer-in form will need to be completed and then we will send you a transfer authority form to approve and sign. We can then arrange for the funds to be transferred from your existing ISA provider in accordance with your instructions.

14.3.2. The transfer-in process will begin on the date on the transfer authority form or the date you stipulate for us to begin the transfer process, whichever is later. We will then send your request for the transfer to your existing ISA Provider within five business days of receiving your transfer authority form.

14.3.3. You may transfer any cash in your current year’s ISA subscriptions in whole, and/or you can transfer previous years subscriptions in whole or in part (together with interest) to another ISA provider in accordance with the ISA Regulations and these conditions. You will need to contact your other ISA provider to arrange the transfer and you can choose the date funds are transferred, subject to us being allowed a reasonable period to implement it.

14.4. Cancellation or Closure of Your IFISA Account

14.4.1. You have the right to cancel the opening of your IFISA Account within 14 calendar days of the date your account is opened. You can do this by emailing investors@sourced.co or by phoning 0333 9009 999.

14.4.2. If your IFISA account is cancelled, unless you provide us with specific instructions, we will transfer any investments and money credited to your IFISA Account to your Regular Investment Account and you will lose the tax benefits associated with an ISA.

14.4.3. After the 14-day cancellation period, you can choose to close your IFISA Account at any time, provided you only have cash in the account. If you do not arrange with another ISA provider to transfer the money in your account to them, you will not be able to subscribe to another IFISA with another ISA provider in the same tax year.

14.4.4. We may close your account with immediate written notice to you if directed to do so by HM Revenue & Customs. You agree to reimburse us and/or Goji for any amounts required to be paid in tax, any administrative fees, charges from HMRC or any tax authority incurred as a result of your failure to comply with ISA Regulations.

14.4.5. We will notify you, if by reason of any failure to satisfy the provisions of the ISA Regulations, all or part of your IFISA has or will become invalid. If the failure can be corrected, we will repair your IFISA, otherwise we will void it.

14.4.6. If we or you close your IFISA and do not receive alternative transfer instructions from you within one month of trying to contact you, any investments and money credited to your IFISA Account will be transferred to your Regular Investment Account.

14.4.7. If we receive notification of your death, we will suspend all transactions and investments in your IFISA. ISA tax exemptions will no longer apply from the date of death, and any interest or gains that arise after the date of death will not be exempt from tax.

14.4.8. Your IFISA will be valued for probate as at the date of death and dealt with as instructed by your executors. We may require a grant of probate or letters of administration before releasing any money in your IFISA to your executors.

14.4.9. We will support the setting up of an IFISA based on Additional Permitted Subscriptions (‘APS’) for your spouse.

14.4.10. If we receive notification of your bankruptcy, we will close your IFISA Account and any investments and money credited to your account will be transferred to your Regular Investment Account.
