Find your dream home with Shared Ownership!

Buy Shared Ownership with L&Q and Find Your Dream Home

With the average home deposit in London reaching six figures, home ownership in the capital can feel increasingly out of reach for first time buyers house hunting in their favourite neighbourhoods.

In a market where property prices continue to rise, alternative routes onto the ladder, such as Shared Ownership, can help bring this goal within reach. Shared Ownership allows buyers to purchase a percentage of the full market value of their home, and rent the additional portion off their housing provider, making it a much more accessible way to get onto the property ladder.

Deposits for the homes through this part-buy, part-rent scheme can be as low as 5 to 10% of the purchased share price – making it an accessible option for a range of buyers, from single professionals to growing families. Whether you’re on the search for a vibrant London borough or a peaceful, suburban town, Shared Ownership means not having to sacrifice living in your dream location.
