Shared ownership is another way to buy your own home. You buy a percentage, and pay rent on the rest. The housing association owns part of it — but you’re living there, you decorate it, and you decide when to sell.

Buying a percentage means a smaller deposit and smaller mortgage. It’s a sooner first step on the ladder for lots of people. Usually, you can also carry on buying shares, to own it 100%.

Local area information

Walthamstow is seeing an unprecedented rate of growth and investment into the town centre and surrounding areas. Waltham Forest’s residents and businesses stand to benefit significantly from the economic growth taking place across London.

The borough’s well-connected location in the east of London, the cultural heart of the capital, along with its unique identity founded in cultural heritage, its burgeoning arts and creative industries, and abundant green spaces all contribute towards the urban vibrancy that makes Waltham Forest a special place to live.

In relative terms, Waltham Forest is now growing faster than any other borough in London. In the last five years the number of jobs in the borough has increased by 30 per cent (the highest in London) and the number of businesses by 40 per cent (the sixth highest increase in London). This in part is due to the significant effect of investment in Olympic legacy projects but also in the overall growth in London and the movement of the capital’s economic activity eastwards.
