Recently listed as one of London’s most affordable and up and coming boroughs, the London Borough of Croydon is an ideal choice for Londoners who are keen to buy their first home in the city. With easy access to a range of restaurants and bars, and labelled the Borough of Culture for 2023, now is an excellent time for individuals to buy their first home in the town and become a part of the community.

Providing an affordable route onto the property ladder in East Croydon, L&Q at Queen’s Quarter is a collection of one, two and three bedroom apartments for sale through Shared Ownership. Ready to move in now, the latest phase of homes at the development forms part of the wider Queen’s Quarter masterplan, which, once complete, will deliver 513 homes and 13,000 sq ft of retail and commercial space in Croydon.

Exclusively available through Shared Ownership, buyers can purchase an apartment with a deposit from as little as £4,100 through the part-buy part-rent scheme.
