London’s largest event for first-time buyers will return to the capital for the sixteenth time on Saturday, the 8th of October 2022. Taking place at the Queen Elizabeth II Centre in Westminster from 10 am to 5 pm, the London Home Show will host over 45 housing providers, conveyancing solicitors, mortgage advisors, and first-time buyer experts.
The event will showcase thousands of Shared Ownership and Help to Buy properties available across London and the Home Counties and provide free financial and legal advice on the day for those looking to purchase their first property.
Hosted by Share to Buy, the UK’s leading online portal for first-time buyer homes, the London Home Show is free to attend and has welcomed thousands of guests twice a year since the inaugural event in 2013.
An unparalleled event for those looking to find out more about alternative homeownership options, attendees will be able to speak directly with housing, and financial and legal experts in the QEII’s main exhibition hall. Guests can attend a series of ‘Ask the Expert: Shared Ownership 101’ sessions which will deep-dive into all things Shared Ownership – from eligibility criteria and applications to staircase and selling.
‘First Time Buyer Workshops’ will also host a panel of industry experts including HomeViews, a property review platform where guests can gather independent opinions and advice on purchasing.
After a hugely popular debut in April this year, a series of ‘Affordability Workshops’ will also be returning to the London Home Show, hosted by first-time buyer mortgage specialists Censeo Financial. The specialized workshops will give attendees the opportunity to ask their questions about the mortgage process and learn about the options available to them.
For those wanting to find out more about other types of affordable housing, the event will also offer information about innovative schemes including Discount Full Ownership, London Living Rent, and more.
Nick Lieb, Head of Operations for Share to Buy, comments: “The London Home Show is a one-of-a-kind resource for first-time buyers across the capital. There is no other event that brings so many major housing providers, plus financial advisors and solicitors, together under one roof to provide one-on-one advice to attendees. The exhibition is always hugely popular, with over 3,500 guests through the door at our spring show in April 2022.
With the applications for Help to Buy closing at the end of October, buyers in London will be looking to other alternative home ownership schemes such as Shared Ownership more than ever. It has never been more important to provide potential purchasers with information about the buying options available to them – particularly as we approach a winter of rising living costs when budgets will only be getting tighter.”
Partnering with some of the sector’s leading housing providers and sales agents, sponsors of the event include L&Q, Latimer by Clarion Housing Group, Peabody, SO Resi by Metropolitan Thames Valley, Square Roots, Southern Home Ownership, Optivo, Catalyst New Homes, Notting Hill Genesis, FABRICA by A2Dominion and SiteSales Property Group. All exhibitors will have their own stand, making it easy for hopeful buyers to get their questions answered directly by sales teams.
