With a track record in creating truly aspirational homes for first time buyers, L&Q offer a wide range of shared ownership developments to suit a vast spectrum of buyers across the capital and beyond. Having recently completed a merger with East Thames Group, firmly positioning L&Q as one of the UK’s most prominent housing associations, the organisation is dedicated to upping its delivery of new homes – meeting the growing needs of first time buyers in a climate where property prices continue to rise. It has been reported that L&Q is involved in the delivery of approximately one in five new homes in London. The organisation increased its development programme by 24% last year, with an impressive long-term pipeline of up to 100,000 new homes in the next 10 years (an unprecedented level for a housing association). Firmly gripped by its socially responsible routes, L&Q is dedicated to ensuring that a minimum 50% of its long-term pipeline will be affordable.
