About District 34

The 33 Districts of London are no longer affordable: the average Londoner needs to wait for 17 years and pay over 8 times their annual salary in rent before they can escape the rental trap and buy their first home.

District 34’s mission is to bring the dignity and security of homeownership to Londoners who are in danger of being left behind.

How it works

We listen to your needs first. Then we use our expertise in real estate, finance, and data analytics to get you onto the housing ladder within two years.

Apply

Reserve

We fund early stage developments based on what our members are looking for, and make the properties exclusively available to our members to reserve. Our buildings are designed for real people, not investors or landlords.

Save

We will tailor a savings plan for you according to your unique circumstances, to help you build up your deposit while the property is being built. Get into the habit of saving and earn exclusive rewards along the way.

Move In

Move into your brand new home. We provide you a grant to cover your homebuying costs so your savings go 100% into your property without leaking out to banks, agents or lawyers.

Climb

We are with you for the journey. The climb up the ladder continues after you move in – we provide ongoing support to help you continue saving and move up to the next rung of the housing ladder.
