Learn more about Shared Ownership

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

The minimum share you can purchase is 25% and the maximum is 75%. You will usually pay a mortgage on the part you own and a subsidised rent on the part you don’t own. As your income rises, you can increase the share you own until you eventually own 100%.

Why choose L&Q when buying your perfect home?

When you buy a new-build home with us, we want you to know that you’re purchasing a home of the highest quality and that’s why we’re setting out our commitment to new customers in our New-build Homes: Quality Standard promise.

A town steeped in history

Portra Rise has a rich history dating back over a century. The site was once home to the Kodak Alaris factory, a renowned institution that employed thousands of people and played a significant role in the community for 130 years. From its early beginnings in 1891, it grew to become the largest manufacturing plant in the British Commonwealth. The factory not only witnessed the rise of industry but also served as a hub for recreational activities. Today, the legacy of Kodak Alaris paves the way for a vibrant and sustainable community featuring podium gardens, green spaces, and fantastic residential offerings.
