Joining Lancaster Cohousing

Homes currently available for sale or rent

Buying or renting  a home in Lancaster Cohousing is a little different from buying or renting a home in an ordinary street. As well as negotiating with the home owner (details below), you also need to consider whether you are prepared to be an active part of the community and apply to join. Please contact our Membership Team as early as possible to start that process in order to avoid holding things up later on. (Note: for the leasehold homes, joining is a requirement; for the freehold homes, joining is optional.)

If there currently no home that meets your needs, but you’d like to stay in touch in case one comes up in the future, please ask our Membership Team about our waiting pool. In the email it would be helpful to know a bit about you, what interests you about cohousing, where you're living at the moment, the ages of the people in your household, and whether you're interested in buying or renting. You may also like to check availability in other cohousing projects on the UK Cohousing Network website here.

Notes on house prices:

There are also 6 freehold 3 bed homes to the west of Halton Mill (nos. 27, 29, 31, 33, 35 and 37 Mill Lane). If you are thinking of buying or renting one of these, you may apply to join Lancaster Cohousing if you wish, but this is not obligatory.

There are no freehold homes currently for sale.

Homes for rent

There are no homes currently for rent, but we would be very interested to hear from people who want to rent, in case any of the homes currently for sale may be bought by people who wish to rent them out.
