L&Q Shared Ownership makes it possible to own your home – even if you feel priced out of the property market.

Under the shared ownership scheme you part-own and part-rent your home, making it possible for first-time buyers and families to get on the property ladder.

How much will shared ownership cost?

There are two types of cost you’ll need to consider:

  • Starting-out costs – including your property reservation fee, deposit, mortgage fees, and stamp duty
  • Ongoing costs – including your mortgage, rent (on the percentage share that L&Q own), and a service charge

If for example you decide to buy 35% of a £400,000 L&Q home:

  • You’ll need a deposit of at least 5% – £7,000.

    • Mortgage – £777.50 (if you have 5%)
