What’s OntoTheLadder?

OntoTheLadder is a much needed alternative to conventional mortgages which allows Buyers to get onto the Property Ladder with only 1% Deposit, no Debt-overhang and full flexibility to buy and sell their home equity.

Why does OntoTheLadder exist?

In 2018 we set out on a mission to overhaul the archaic property sector and combat housing affordability issues within London and the UK by:

  1. Reducing 2-3 month long property sale/purchase time to mere hours
  2. Eliminating the need for 10-15% deposit which take many years to save up whilst paying rent to someone else
  3. Giving much needed flexibility to complete an entire real estate transaction online, from search to closing, and do as you please with your home ownership shares

We are making property purchasing as simple as letting whilst solving today’s massive and growing social problem of 2/3rds of millennials never being able to afford a property in the UK capital and beyond.

How is OntoTheLadder doing all this?

Our core offering is based on:

  1. Rent-to-Own system
    Our proprietary Rent-to-Own system enables you to buy your own home with only 1% deposit and pay rent on what you don’t own yet. You have full flexibility to buy more shares in your home – monthly, quarterly and/or annually – it’s up to you. The more you own the less rent you pay!Short on cash one month and can’t make a payment? No worries, we can take a portion of your built-up equity instead until you’re back on your feet.
  2. Pre-selected properties
    Our for-sale properties undergo a full due diligence survey prior to onboarding them into our ecosystem. We do all the bureaucratic heavy lifting saving you time and our offered properties are ready to buy and move-in immediately. 2-3 month transaction times are a thing of the past.And because we source properties in bulk, we are able to negotiate substantial discounts from developers and agents saving you even more money than if you were to go at it alone.
  3. Blockchain technology
    Backed by one of the world’s largest and secure computer networks in the world, implementing blockchain technology in our transaction engine allows for transaction security, traceability, transparency and auditability, eliminating any possibility of fraud and keeping your records and investment safe at all times.
