Think You Can't Afford To Buy In London?

This is a sponsored article on behalf of L&Q.

London is one of the most expensive cities in the world, no more so than when it comes to housing. Shared Ownership, where you buy a percentage of the property and pay rent on the rest, could be the answer, thanks to providers like L&Q.

With developments all over London and the South East, L&Q allows you to buy your own property in stages through Shared Ownership. In a pricey location like the capital, this is a much more manageable solution to getting on the property ladder.

For a complete guide to how the scheme works, give L&Q PricedIn site a read — this is a comprehensive guide to the buying process. Through a process called 'staircasing', you can actually own the place outright, but buy it in stages.

One of the swanky developments from L&Q is set in the south London riverside borough of Greenwich. Greenwich Peninsula is a new neighbourhood with five distinct 'boroughs', right in the heart of tons of history and culture — check out the video Joolz made of all the great things about the area.

From gigs at The O2, to walks in the park, checking out the Maritime Museum or just having a pint at the award-winning Gypsy Moth pub, Greenwich seems to have it all. With great transport links, this is an ideal area to put down some roots.

Sound appealing? Look at the properties on offer at L&Q's Greenwich Peninsula development, and get clued up on the finance side of things through the comprehensive PricedIn knowledge hub.

Shared Ownership could mean actually owning a pad in this crazy city — and that's not such a crazy idea.

Take a look at L&Q’s official PricedIn video here.
