About us

Legal & General was founded in 1836 by six lawyers in a coffee shop on London’s Chancery Lane. From the very start, we were convinced that private ownership and social progress could work together, so housing was a natural evolution for us.

Nearly two centuries later, we are investing in new homes for all ages, social groups and home ownership schemes.

Our misson

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.

As a company, we have never stopped moving forward, but our position of being a byword for reliability, integrity and trust, is one we will never move from.

Our values

Our values underpin everything we do:

We aim to bring you the best possible experience in every aspect of your new home. That’s in location, design, finishes, environment and, above all, value.

Customer Service
We’re committed to providing first-class customer service, from the moment you arrive to when you open the door of your new home.

We work to minimise the environmental impact of what we do. That means reducing carbon emissions, using renewable materials and following sustainable design and building processes.
