About L&Q

L&Q is one of the UK's leading housing associations and one of London's largest residential developers. We own or manage over 90,000 homes in London and the South East.

We build high quality homes to meet a range of needs and incomes. We also provide other services for our residents, such as managing their homes and investing in local communities.

Our residents and our homes

We provide homes to a wide variety of people, on a broad range of incomes.

Our 'general needs' homes, as we call them, are usually rented to families on low incomes, who come to us from local council lists of people who need housing most.

We also provide shared ownership homes to people who are taking their first steps on the housing ladder. 

We rent and sell homes at the going market rate too. Every penny of any surplus we make is then invested back into providing more and better homes and services to residents.

Our work

All our work is about creating places where people want to live.

We focus on the long term and our success comes from our determination to maximise resident satisfaction, while at the same time growing our business responsibly. 

As well as building new homes, we are also involved in large community regeneration projects and we sometimes take on homes that are transferred to us from local councils. 

We believe in investing in the neighbourhoods we work in. We do this through the L&Q Foundation, which supports work with local community organisations and charities. We focus on projects that increase employability, provide positive futures for young people, promote financial inclusion and strengthen communities.

We also work to achieve value for money so that our residents get the best level of service possible from us at a cost they can afford.
