What is BrikkApp?
BrikkApp is your “one-stop-shop” for real estate crowdfunding investing. We provide the ability for anyone to choose and invest in real estate projects from amounts as low as 100 EUR / 1000 CZK. We connect you, the investor, with real estate crowdfunding investment platforms that have investment opportunities all over the world. We provide transparent data about the platforms and their successes.
Instead of finding and researching each individual platform, BrikkApp collects all the information in one place for you. Users can find and compare platforms based on investment statistics, investment opportunities, reviews, and social media presence.
Once you complete your registration, you can invest directly in projects you prefer on the BrikkApp marketplace.
Who uses BrikkApp?
BrikkApp is an online marketplace for anyone interested in investing in real estate. Whether you are just starting with investing or you have been investing for decades, and no matter what your appetite for risk is, we have projects available to satisfy any investor.
At BrikkApp, we provide not only knowledge about the real estate crowdfunding market, but also the ability to directly invest and diversify your portfolio with property projects from across the globe. BrikkApp aggregates projects facilitated by its partner platforms, which are individual real estate crowdfunding platforms registered in a number of European countries.
By registering with BrikkApp, users get instant access to investing in real estate projects across Europe. The user also gets access to verified market data, including the track record of the individual investment providers.
Is BrikkApp free?
Yes, it’s free to create a user profile with BrikkApp, and it only takes a moment to set up. You’ll need to enter basic personal information about yourself and you can start exploring BrikkApp right away. Once registered, you will have access to our entire database of platforms and additional resources such as market reports. Investing on BrikkApp is commission-free and there are no further hidden fees (no management fee or similar).
Who can invest?
BrikkApp allows you to invest in fractions of properties. Often, you can invest from as little as 100 EUR. Thus, no matter what your investment budget is, there are suitable investments to select from.
Both individuals and entities can use BrikkApp to build their diversified investment portfolios.
The registration process for individuals requires the user to be above 18 years old and includes an AML/KYC check to verify your identity.
What is the minimum amount that can be invested?
Investing on BrikkApp is affordable for both users who are just starting with investing as well as seasoned investors. The minimum investment amount on BrikkApp's primary market is 100 EUR in EUR projects or 1000 CZK in CZK projects. From time to time, you will see that the minimum is even lower for a limited period of time so that we help newcomers test how BrikkApp works. Quite often, the project providers have higher minimum investment amounts on their platforms, however, we keep these minimums lower for projects to democratise and increase the accessibility of real estate investments for all our users.
How safe are property investments?
BrikkApp exclusively allows investing in real estate, and real estate has always been a popular investment choice. This is because, compared to the stock market or crypto investment, real estate is generally an investment with less risk due to being a stable and nonvolatile asset. However, any type of investment contains risk. There is no guarantee the value of your investment will increase, and there is always a possibility you lose money on your investment.
BrikkApp does not provide investment advice. Any provided information is for purely informational purposes and to assist in your own investment decision-making.
What data do you provide?
BrikkApp aggregates data from hundreds of property investment platforms, which are (1) online, (2) publicly accessible, (3) offer crowdfunding investing into real estate projects.
In one dashboard, our users can thoroughly compare the platforms based on their investment history and successes, their geography, and the type of investments offered.
In which countries does BrikkApp operate?
BrikkApp offers direct investments in projects across Europe. Regarding direct investment opportunities, we only offer projects that BrikkApp has conducted its own due diligence on, and provided by platforms we closely cooperate with.
However, we also collect data on the entire real estate crowdfunding market, so that our users can compare and find verified information about any provider from all across the world. If you don't see an investment opportunity in your country, it might be for two reasons: (1) currently, there are no online property investment platforms in this country; (2) we could not verify the data about the platform, thus, we decided not to list it until we can collect more data.

Verification of Your Identity
Why do we need to check your identity and do the anti-money laundering checks?
Verifying your identity is required by the investments regulation and is an essential part of our due diligence process. Part of the regulation is that we need to verify your identity and prevent money laundering. For this reason, we ask every user to upload a proof of identity (we can accept a valid ID card or passport or driving lience) and a proof of address (Some govermantel ID cards include it. If it is not your case, we can accept a council tax bill, utility bill or bank statement). The whole process is managed electronically. Whilst we appreciate that this can be an inconvenience, our objective and intention is ultimately a benefit that protects both our customers and ourselves.
What is proof of identity?
In order to verify your account, we will require a scanned copy of your valid passport or both sides of your government-issued identification card.
This copy must contain:
a. Full Name
b. Date of Birth
d. Valid Expiry Date
The scanned document should be high resolution and the above details must be clearly readable.
What is proof of address?
To verify your account, you are required to provide us with a document confirming your current permanent residential address. This document must be issued in the name of the BrikkApp account holder and dated within the last 3 months (with the exception of valid government-issued identification documents, such as a driving license), and must contain the following information:
a. Your name
b. Your current residential address
c. The date of issue
d. The issuing authority
e. A reference to the issuing authority (logo, contact information, website, etc.)
We accept documents that are issued by a government agency, a bank, a utility company, or a judicial authority.
Investments on BrikkApp
What are real estate crowdfunding investments?
Real estate crowdfunding is when individual investors are connected with real estate project owners, via an online platform, in order to finance real estate projects. Investors typically loan money to developers in the form of bonds or other debt securities.
What exactly am I investing in?
On BrikkApp, you invest by purchasing part of a loan, which is then used to finance a specific real estate project. Once the loan is fully funded, the project proceeds. You are given all the details of the property and developer, and after investment are compensated via payment back of your capital plus the interest rate specified in the loan.
What is the source of these investments?
BrikkApp offers investment opportunities that come from third-party crowdfunding platforms. BrikkApp partners with the best real estate crowdfunding platforms on the market in order to provide investors with diverse investment opportunities all across Europe. With BrikkApp, you can invest on multiple platforms, in multiple countries - all in one dashboard!
Am I investing directly in the partner platforms?
No. BrikkApp is a marketplace that offers investment opportunities sourced from partner platforms. BrikkApp facilitates your investment and thus your contractual relationship is with BrikkApp. The contractual relationship is between the investor and BrikkApp.
Who can invest on BrikkApp?
Everyone with an EEA country or United Kingdom bank account is permitted to invest in projects offered by BrikkApp.
How do I start investing?
First, register for BrikkApp! After creating a user profile, you are then able to submit your identification documents to satisfy KYC/AML requirements. Once your identity was verified, you can fund your investor account via bank transfer. With your funds, you can then select any of the projects offered on BrikkApp and choose how much you would like to invest. A few clicks after that you are an official investor in real estate!
What is the minimum investment?
The minimum investment is 100 EUR for EUR projects or 1,000 CZK for CZK projects.
Is the interest rate on investments fixed?
Yes, the interest rate paid by the borrower and given to investors is fixed throughout the loan period. The payment frequency and interest rate can vary depending on the specific project.
Are returns on my investments guaranteed?
All investments come with risk and your investments are not guaranteed. It is possible to lose some or all of your investment. Refer to our Risk Warning for more details.
BrikkApp's risk assessment team performs rigorous due diligence on every project before offering it to our investors to reduce as much risk as possible. Only the highest quality projects originating from proven partner platforms are presented at BrikkApp.
What about taxes?
All interest earned is before tax and BrikkApp does not withhold tax on any of your investments. All interest earned from loans is treated by tax authorities as investment income and thus subject to income tax. The income gained from your investments on BrikkApp can be found in your investor dashboard along with associated documents that can be used for filing your taxes. BrikkApp does not provide tax-related advice and recommends that you turn to a local tax advisor for additional information.
Is BrikkApp regulated?
Currently, there are no regulations covering the services offered on BrikkApp in the Czech Republic. Once the legal framework is established, BrikkApp will apply for the European Crowdfunding Service Provider license. For all services requiring governance, BrikkApp is partnered with EasyChange, which is a regulated payment service provider.
Funds in Your BrikkApp Account
Why does BrikkApp cooperate with Easychange - the payment service provider?
BrikkApp has established a partnership with EasyChange, which is our payment service provider. Similar to other companies such as Lemonway, Mangopay, etc. they provide our investors with payment services and wallets where investors can manage their investment funds. Investors' money in their e-wallet is deposited in "special purpose bank accounts".
This is a great benefit for all our investors, as it means that these bank accounts are completely separate from the BrikkApp and EasyChange operating funds. At the same time, all funds in wallets are deposited in these bank accounts and all the income of our investors also flows here. In the unlikely event that BrikkApp or Easychange get into financial difficulties, your money in your wallet and the return on your investment will remain intact.
How do I get an e-wallet for BrikkApp investments?
The process is simple: after your KYC has been completed, we generate your investor ID and your EUR and CZK wallet are automatically created. Your wallet will allow you to invest in real estate projects on BrikkApp.
Are the funds in my wallet insured?
BrikkApp nor EasyChange are a bank, so your investments and deposits are not insured under EDIS or similar regulations.
Why do I have two wallets?
On BrikkApp, we give our investors the ability to invest in either Czech crowns or euros. Investors can transfer funds to either wallet. This can reduce foreign exchange fees incurred during bank transfers.
How do I transfer money into my e-wallet?
To transfer money to your BrikkApp wallet, simply create a bank transfer using the information provided in your account. You can transfer money to your wallet from your bank accounts and other third-party service providers. An important condition is that the bank account is held in your name.
How do I withdraw money from my e-wallet?
To move money out of your e-wallet, simply initiate a transfer from your BrikkApp user dashboard to your connected bank account.
How do I exchange my money between my CZK and EUR wallets?
I added incorrect payment details. What happens with my deposit?
We will try our best to pair your transfer to your BrikkApp account if possible. If your transfer is not found in your BrikkApp account after at least 3 business days, contact our support team.
After 10 business days, we will always return unpaired deposits to their respective accounts based on the details provided in the transfer.
How long does it take to deposit / withdraw?
For deposits, it can take anywhere from 1 hour to a couple of business days. It very much depends on which bank you use. For withdrawals normally you will receive your funds in a few days. However, it may take up to 10 business days, depending on the payment method used.
