Shared Ownership – The Alternative You’ve Been Looking For


The property market is seeing ‘record-high prices’, as people begin to relocate after the pandemic, with UK property prices in general up 7.5 per cent on March 2020. 

The latest House Price Index, from Rightmove, indicates the cost of a property coming onto the market in May rose by £2,509. House prices are seeing a surge everywhere, not just within the capital. Indeed, London’s prime commuter towns are also seeing a rise in prices as they now become a realistic option for hybrid or remote workers. 

As a result, it may now seem like an impossible task to find the perfect family home, with commuter links, in and around the capital. 

However, with Shared Ownership, it’s still very much an option. 

We have a fantastic range of homes available in idyllic, tranquil locations, that are within easy commuting distance of London, and are more affordable than buying outright. 

For example, our one and two bedroom apartments at Longcross offer affordable living in leafy Surrey. Close to the station and handy for airports and motorways, homes at Longcross boast excellent travel links and start at £143,500 for a share of 35% of a two-bedroom apartment. 

Ockford Park offers homes within a quintessential village location in the heart of an established local community, just a mile from the picturesque market town of Godalming. Offering fantastic travel links, you can be in Guildford within 8 minutes and reach London Waterloo within just 50 minutes. Ockford Park also lies close to the A3, offering great road links to London. Prices at Ockford Park start at just £101,500 for a minimum share of 35%, making a life just outside of the capital that bit more affordable.
