Shared Ownership

Shared Ownership is a part buy/part rent scheme that makes it possible for first time buyers to purchase a property that otherwise would not have been affordable. It is a government-backed scheme launched in 2006 for people who are unable to afford to buy a home at full market value.

Help to Buy

Help to Buy is a Government backed scheme that assists buyers with an equity loan of up to 40% of the property purchase price when buying in London.

Rent to Buy

Rent to Buy allows you to rent a new home at a 20% discount, allowing you to save for a deposit and own your home through Shared Ownership after 2 years.

Private Sale

Peabody builds architecturally intelligent and beautifully designed homes with impressive specifications on the open market.
