Hey peeps! Are any of you about to move, or thinking about buying your first home? If so, this blog post is gonna be perfect for ya! I've collaborated with L&Q to tell you a bit about their shared ownership options and give you some tips on personalising your new home. 


First up, what is shared ownership you may be asking? It's a scheme which is aimed at helping first time buyers get onto the property ladder, buying a minimum 25% share in a new build property, and renting the un-owned share from L&Q for a subsidised rent. It means that instead of needing a deposit and the financial means to own a whole property you can own part of one which is much more affordable to many people, especially in London!

You have the same rights as any owner occupier, meaning (most importantly, ha!) that you can decorate it how you like :)

Why not check out this little video we put together to show you how to transform a new white box into something uber cool and unique?

L&Q have a variety of properties across London and the South East, so if you're wanting to put down roots and own your first home but didn't think it was an option for you then you should go and check out their website for more info and a complete guide to shared ownership.
