L&Q will guide you through the Shared Ownership Staircasing process...
Staircasing is a process that enables you to buy further shares in your home to increase your equity. Watch the video to find out more.
Start by emailing us at Staircasingpack@lqgroup.org.uk to request a Staircasing Pack, which has all the details you need to help you through the process, including further information on how Staircasing works, contact points, costs and lists of L&Q approved consultants.
To ascertain whether Staircasing is a viable option for you, now or in the future, including establishing the amount of equity you already own, we can refer you to one of our panel of independent financial advisors all with Staircasing experience.

To establish the current market value of your home, we have included our recommended panel of expert independent RICS/FRICS qualifified surveyors in the Staircasing Pack.
To engage a solicitor to act on your behalf, we have included our recommended panel of independent solicitors in the Staircasing Pack. They all have a long track record dealing with Staircasing.
After we receive your property valuation, solicitors’ details, administration fee, and a home improvement form (if applicable), we will work directly with your solicitor until completion.
Staircasing usually takes up to three months, from beginning to completion. L&Q are here to help guide you through the process.
‘I was slightly worried about hidden costs, but it turned out that I didn’t have to pay any stamp duty when I Staircased as I was under the threshold. The whole process was really simple and I’d really recommend it to anyone thinking about whether or not to Staircase.’
