Undergoing large-scale transformation, East Croydon is fast becoming a property hotspot for buyers seeking value for money in a vibrant, well-connected location. Combining green spaces, superb transport links, and a fantastic cultural scene, East Croydon is quickly establishing itself as South London’s most exciting urban village.
L&Q is helping buyers step onto the property ladder in East Croydon with a new collection of one, two, and three-bedroom apartments at L&Q at Queens Quarter. The high-quality homes are available exclusively through Shared Ownership – the part buy, part rent Government-backed scheme helping to open up the property ladder for the capital’s first-time buyers – with prices starting from just £82,500 for a 25% share of a one-bedroom apartment. Deposits required start from just £4,125.
Available through Shared Ownership
Through Shared Ownership, eligible buyers are able to purchase a percentage share of their home, usually at a minimum of 25%, and pay rent on the remaining portion. Helping to keep costs down for new buyers, deposits can be as low as 5% or 10% of the purchased share price. As and when buyers can afford to, they can purchase greater shares in their home through a process called ‘staircasing’, until they own their home outright.
A range of green spaces nearby
The collection of apartments at L&Q at Queens Quarter are part of a new neighbourhood adjacent to Queen’s Gardens, a lush and beloved local park. Featuring manicured lawns, leafy mature trees, and bright flower beds, the picturesque setting is perfect for an afternoon walk or reading in the sun, miles away from typical city living. Alternatively, the roof garden on the top floor of L&Q at Queens Quarter offers a more exclusive outdoor hideaway, providing panoramic views of South London.
