First ready-made Legal and General homes expected this summer
Legal and General is expected to complete its first set of ready-made homes within the next three months followed by a range of stock in the new year, the provider has said.

L&G’s specialist division L&G Homes will manage the production line and plans to have the first homes built by the end of September.

The provider said it aims to reach full capacity by the end of this year, when it will be able to produce about 50 houses a week.

L&G announced earlier this year it would invest £55m into the development of a factory near Leeds, which will be able to produce 3,000 houses or 4,500 flats a year.

L&G’s homes are designed to be entirely factory built, including carpets, curtains, white goods and television.

“What we’re looking to do is have a design suite where tenants and residents can come and almost design their own homes,” L&G Property managing director Bill Hughes had told delegates at a developer forum in June.

A spokesman for the provider said: “Once we are set up and running it’s just about turning them out. We will be able to produce about one house every six days, turning out about 50 houses a week when at full capacity, which we hope to achieve by the end of this year.”

He added the company was set on sourcing the vast majority or parts from the UK but denied previous suggestions it was poised to enter the supply chain itself.

L&G is already involved in the residential sector, working with property management company, Touchstone, to help councils supply new build-to-rent housing.
