Buying a Studio Flat in London with Galliard
Buy your Studio Flat through Help to Buy
For young prospective homeowners, Help to Buy offers a much needed helping hand onto the property ladder. In an era where purchasing property has become increasingly difficult for the younger generation, Government schemes such as Help to Buy provide a lifeline. For those wanting to use the scheme, the criteria for eligibility is that you are a first-time buyer purchasing a new-build home for sale to live in under the value of £600,000. You are also required to have at least a 5% deposit. Those buying in London will benefit from a 40% equity loan from Homes England, with those purchasing outside of London benefitting from a 20% equity loan.
Buy your Studio Flat through the Mortgage Guarantee Scheme
The mortgage guarantee scheme will increase the availability of 95% mortgages to help young buyers onto the property ladder with just a 5% deposit. Introduced with the aim of helping long-term renters become homeowners, the scheme requires applicants to purchase a property up to the value of £600,000 and the property must be their live-in home.
Buy your Studio Flat as an Off-Plan Investment
Purchasing off-plan property has long been a fruitful investment. If you’re unfamiliar with the term, ‘off-plan’ simply means that you purchase the property before the build is complete, or on some occasions before the developer has even begun building it all. If you’re seeking an investment property for sale in London that will give you a good return, Galliard Homes offer many suitable off-plan flats for sale in London. But why invest in London property? Well, London’s consistent property market has remained very attractive to Buy-to-Let investors in search of a steady income and tangible assets.

How much does a studio flat cost to buy in London?
Studio flats are a cost-effective way to get onto the property ladder. As a first-time buyer, buying your first home can feel somewhat unachievable. House prices in London are high, and therefore studio flats can be a suitable choice for those who just want to get the homeownership ball rolling. Prices vary depending on location but in comparison to a one bedroom apartment in the capital, they are usually cheaper. Galliard Homes have studio flats for sale in London from just £199,000.
Is a studio flat a good investment?
The perfect bolthole for a young professional or student, purchasing a studio flat is sure to be a rewarding investment. Appealing to those in search of an affordable and conveniently-located place to live, renters often seek out studio apartments to find their feet in a new city. The self-contained style of living is attractive to solo dwellers who don’t want to live in shared accommodation and want to live independently. With around one fifth of dwellings in England occupied by private renters, there is definitely an appetite for this type of investment.
What should I look for when buying a studio flat?
Studio flats generally consist of an open-plan living, eating and sleeping area with a separate bath or shower room. Some studio flats offer more privacy in the form of a partition wall to segregate the living area from the bedroom area which is great for those who want the feel of a one bedroom apartment without the price tag. A number of Galliard studio apartments also offer a swivel TV unit within the partition wall which is an excellent space-saving feature for watching TV in bed or on the sofa.
Although often small in size, if the apartment has been well designed then space shouldn’t be too much of an issue for a solo dweller. Fitted wardrobes and storage cupboards can be found in all Galliard studio apartments to maximize space and comfort for occupants.
Location is a key factor for consideration when buying a studio flat, particularly if you are buying it as a Buy-to-Let investment. Think about up-and-coming commuter belt locations that offer a community feel with great transport links – that’s what most renters are looking for in the post-Covid era.
