Legal & General Affordable Homes: London living made accessible through Shared Ownership

Shared Ownership apartments available in Hammersmith and Fulham, Tower Hamlets and Hounslow

Legal & General Affordable Homes (LGAH) is one of the specialist housing arms of Legal & General Capital and aiming to become the top private provider of social and affordable housing in the UK.

With a wide range of homes across London available through Shared Ownership, LGAH offers an alternative option for getting onto the housing ladder – you buy a percentage of a property and pay rent on the remainder.

The scheme means that people who may have previously thought homeownership in London was impossible can now afford to part-buy and get a foot onto the capital’s housing ladder without the high deposit accompanied with purchasing outright. It’s a unique opportunity to put your own stamp on a new, modern home finished to the highest specification.

With Shared Ownership Week commencing on October 5th, it’s the perfect time to find out more about the opportunities available with LGAH’s Shared Ownership schemes across London.

Ben Denton, Chief Executive at Legal & General Affordable Homes, said; “We know how daunting the prospect of buying a house can be – especially in London where prices are continuing to skyrocket. Shared Ownership with Legal & General Affordable Homes makes owning a house that much more accessible and creates a level of security and freedom that renting can’t provide. 

“We’re really excited to be a lead sponsor of Shared Ownership Week. It’s a great opportunity for those looking to get on the housing ladder to learn more about the benefits of Shared Ownership and how they could afford to live in new build homes in these central locations.”
