One-bedroom flats for sale

Applications are invited for 1-bedroom flats available for Fixed Equity sale. You may be eligible if:

  • you work or live in Lewisham, or have other strong connections to Lewisham
  • you can afford to buy a flat under this scheme (guide price: £274,500 for 53m2) but can’t afford a similar property on the open market. A financial assessment will be carried out by interview.

Please note that as a Community Land Trust, dedicated to providing homes that remain affordable in perpetuity, RUSS will retain 20% of the value of the homes to guarantee that they stay affordable even if they change hands.
