Great homes: places where people are proud to live

About Origin Housing

Having a safe and secure place you can call home is one of the most important things in life

We are a registered social landlord, managing over 6,900 homes in London and Hertfordshire. We provide affordable housing in our communities as well as care and support services to the people who live in them.

Origin Housing started life in 1924 as St. Pancras House Improvement Society, a charitable organisation founded by Father Basil Jellicoe because of a belief that good quality affordable housing is a foundation for a successful life.

Thanks to a subsequent series of mergers with other organisations: Humanist Housing Association, Griffin Homes, and Lee Housing Association, we now work in 14 areas across North London and Hertfordshire.

Stress free!

I would definitely recommend Origin Housing and shared ownership to friends and family. The whole process went very smoothly and as a first time buyer all my questions were answered that I was unsure of. This helped the whole process be as stress free as possible and less daunting as a first time buyer

Easy process!

I would 100% recommend Shared Ownership to anyone looking to buy. The process is really easy and as I was buying on my own, it was the only way for me to get on the property ladder in central London.

Outstanding service

The service we received from the Sales team was outstanding - they were always friendly, helpful and efficient. Just six months passed between us originally showing interest to moving in, allowing us to be wonderfully settled in, in time for Christmas.

Amazing customer support so far!

The financial advisor and the Origin Sales team were really helpful and gave me plenty of guidance, and were very quick to respond to any questions I had.
