Gateway Housing has been supporting communities to thrive since 1926

Gateway is a well-established community-based housing association with 3,000 properties primarily in the London Borough of Tower Hamlets. Gateway was formed in 2008 when Bethnal Green and Victoria Park Housing Association merged with Labo Housing Association. Our early formation goes back to 1926 when we began life as Bethnal Green Housing Association. The first scheme at Queen Margaret Flats (still owned and managed by Gateway today) was opened in 1929.

What exactly is Shared Ownership?

Shared Ownership is a government approved scheme where you part-buy and part-rent your new home. It’s designed to help people who would find it difficult to buy a home outright, and who are at least 18 years old. The cost of your new home is divided – shared – with you taking out a mortgage for one share, which can be between 25% and 75% depending on your circumstances. You pay rent on the remaining share.
