Note on joining the community

For the 35 leasehold homes (1-31 Forgebank Walk and 39-47 Mill Lane), you must have been accepted as a member of Lancaster Cohousing before you can complete a leasehold or rental agreement. For the six freehold homes (27-37 Mill Lane), there’s no requirement to be a member: if you wish to join, you can apply to join before completion or later at any point if you wish.

So, for a leasehold home, as well as negotiating with the home owner in the normal way, you must also apply to be an member of the community. Please read the whole of the Join section to make sure you understand what it means to join the community, how to get to know us, and how to apply. Please contact our Membership Team join@lancastercohousing.org.uk to start that process as early as possible in order to avoid holding up the purchase or rental agreement later on.

Homes for sale (all are built to Passiv House standard)

Homes for rent - none at the moment but...

If there is no home available…

We are always very interested to hear from people who want to buy, rent or buy to rent. If there is 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. In particular, there’s a new separate senior cohousing project happening in Halton for over 55s: a site has been identified, initial plans drawn up, and hopefully building will start in 2021.
