What is a UCIS?


Most investors are unaware that the unit they have purchased may be an Unregulated Collective Investment Scheme (“UCIS”).

The term (“UCIS”) applies to a wide range of investment types and you may have been wrongly advised to purchase in a particular scheme. These schemes are frequently used where large buildings are being split into smaller units and sold off with individual titles.

The Financial Services and Markets Act 2000 (FSMA) section S235 defines a Collective Investment Scheme.


S235/2 states:-

  • “The arrangements must be such that the persons who are to participate (“participants”) do not have day-to-day control over the management of the property, whether or not they have the right to be consulted or give directions.”


S235/3 goes on:

“The arrangements must also have either or both of the following characteristics” —

a) the contributions of the participants and the profits or income out of which payments are to be made to them are pooled;

(b) the property is managed as a whole by or on behalf of the operator of the scheme.


If you think that the property you have purchased may be part of an unlawful Unregulated Collective Investment Scheme you may be entitled to a refund of your purchase price and costs (even if the developer has gone into liquidation).

UCIS Advice Point will provide a totally FREE ASSESSMENT to anyone who may be concerned about their investment.
