Peabody supports recent Stamp Duty Annoucement with a selection of properties under £500,000

The average price of a home in London is nearly £700,0001, making it increasingly more difficult for first-time buyers to take their first steps on the property ladder. However, as London’s oldest housing association, we have a vast range of Shared Ownership developments available in desirable locations across the Capital priced under £500,000.

Not only does this help make owning these homes more achievable for buyers, but it also makes purchasers exempt from paying Stamp Duty thanks to Chancellor Phillip Hammond, who abolished the tax on Shared Ownership properties valued under £500,000 in the recent Autumn Budget - ultimately saving first-time buyers up to £10,000 when purchasing their new home.

We have a selection of high-quality properties available within this price bracket, located in Ealing, Lewisham, Camberwell and Stratford, including:

Ternary Place, Ealing

Ternary Place is a stunning collection of one- and two-bedroom apartments situated in the Zone 3 hub of Ealing.

Sitting just a four-minute walk from North Ealing Underground station serving the Piccadilly Line, residents of Ternary Place can reach Leicester Square and Covent Garden in just 40 minutes. An abundance of scenic green spaces surrounds the development, such as Ealing Common, which is less than a 10-minute walk away, ideal for residents looking to enjoy a weekend stroll or outdoor workout.

Prices for a one-bedroom apartment start at £118,500 for a 30 per cent of a one-bedroom apartment with a full market value of £395,000.
