New homes London

The capital city and largest city of England and the UK. The River Thames established London as a major settlement 2,000 years ago. The city’s diversity crosses London's boroughs, each with unique reasons to call them home.

Why rent when you could own?

According to, the average asking rent for apartments in Croydon, Greater London was £1,905* per calendar month. With shared ownership, your outgoing could be £1,217 a month for a one bedroom apartment at Crescent Gardens

This example demonstrates a potential outgoings saving of £688 a month, for your first step on the property ladder.

Day-to-day costs may also be lower with new-build homes. They require less maintenance and tend to be more energy-efficient than existing homes. Your energy bills could be lower too due to more energy-efficient design features.
