Leading North London chartered surveyors Lawrence Eden Associates is pleased to announce its partnership with the revolutionary new solution to shared ownership, Share a Mortgage.

Share a Mortgage is a joint ownership facilitator for private home-buyers wishing to pool their assets to buy and share properties in a safe and affordable way. Single, local professionals and people with lesser incomes alike can find like-minded buyers to team up with and share the deposit, mortgage and all ongoing living and legal costs, so they are then able to buy a property of their own using this bespoke service.

Share a Mortgage is partnered with RICS Property Surveyors, Mortgage Advisors, Insurance Providers, Credit Agencies and Conveyancing Solicitors to provide the full conveyancing service to their clients. They also provide targeted online tools such as a Mortgage Calculator.

Lawrence Eden Associates will provide friendly and professional surveying services to clients collaboratively buying through Share a Mortgage. With a team of specialist surveyors trained in all areas of residential surveying, Lawrence Eden Associates is the perfect partner for Share a Mortgage to combine with. All its surveyors are regulated by the Royal Institute of Chartered Surveyors (RICS).

Andrew Boast of Share a Mortgage said: “When looking for the right kind of surveyor to provide both a friendly and professional service; and who has extensive knowledge of North London, North West London and Central London, we found Lawrence Eden Associates ticked all the boxes.”

“Winston and his team have the right attitude. Client first. It is rare to find surveyors who are so proactive in looking after their clients and I know how much they dislike hearing anything except the best feedback. That is one of the main reasons as to why they have been so successful in their business.

“When buying with someone else; whether it's a mortgage buddy, married couple, friend or family, you really rely your building surveyor's knowledge to guide you towards paying the right price for a property, especially given how expensive things can become if your property has issues, such as subsidence.

“This is why Share a Mortgage is particularly glad to join up with Lawrence Eden Associates: we know all our clients will be in the safest of hands.”
