Get to know us

At Legal & General Affordable Homes our mission is to become the leading private affordable housing provider in the UK and to make a positive difference to the affordable housing sector.


We’re part of Legal & General

We are a leading direct investor, developer, and operator in residential property. We have one of the largest and most diverse residential platforms in the UK and have successfully scaled up multiple operating businesses across a range of tenures, building houses to sell and rent, providing lively retirement communities and finding new ways to deliver affordable housing.

We take a socially orientated investment approach, with a commitment to delivering the housing that our society needs to address structural shortages across every dimension of the market. As a result, we have delivered 15,000 homes in the last three years. As a sustainable and responsible investor, we have made a commitment to enable all our new homes to operate at net zero carbon emissions from 2030.

We’re addressing the chronic undersupply of affordable housing in the UK

The need for good quality affordable housing in the UK is more prevalent than ever before.

Our vision is for everyone to have a high-quality, well-managed, sustainable and affordable home from which they can live better futures. However, there are not enough affordable homes being delivered to meet the housing needs. The National Housing Federation estimate that 145,000 affordable homes per year in England alone are required, with only around one-third of those being delivered.
