Meet Olivia and Jason

Residents, Olivia and Jason, were looking to find a property that fit their requirements. While visiting Wixams, they found L&Q at Willow Grove which ticked every one of their boxes, and it was available with Shared Ownership scheme. Here is an insight on their experience of buying their home with L&Q, and what life is like at Willow Grove.

Resident Bryony made the big decision to move out of London and enjoy the English countryside with the help of our Shared Ownership scheme at Willow Grove. Find out more about her buying experience with L&Q and what life is like now at Willow Grove.

Interested in L&Q at Willow Grove?

If you’ve already applied for L&Q Shared Ownership and been approved as eligible, you can register your interest by completing the REGISTER INTEREST form at the top of the page.

To buy a shared ownership home within this development, you’ll need to be approved for Shared Ownership with both L&Q and your local Help to Buy agent.

  1. Apply with L&Q
  2. Apply with Help to Buy South

Although you can register your interest before you’ve applied for shared ownership, you won’t be able to view or reserve a home until you’ve been approved as eligible.

Please note that the Help to Buy agent for Bedfordshire changed on the 2nd January 2020 which means that if you had registered before this date you will need to re-register with the new agent for the area – Help to Buy South. Unfortunately we will be unable to accept reference numbers that relate to the previous Help to Buy agent.
