About L&G

You may know us as a pension and insurance provider, but we’re also a major UK housebuilder and investor in residential real estate.

Building a better society since 1836

Legal & General is one of the UK's leading financial services groups and a major global investor, passionate in the belief that capitalism and social progress are not opposing forces. We do this by investing our customers money and our own profits to help make life better for everyone. We tackle some of societies biggest challenges, like climate change, the housing crisis and underdevelopment in our towns and cities.

It’s been in our DNA since 1836, when we took our first step in regenerating Britain’s towns and cities by investing £20,000 in the Stockton and Hartlepool Railway to help keep cities moving, and made our very first investment in property development, in Birkenhead.

We call this approach ‘inclusive capitalism’. Today, we create communities, build much needed homes, invest in ideas, the future of social and elderly care, transport infrastructure and clean power. We go beyond just investing, and are known for actively working alongside our partners to make sure together we champion sustainability and diversity.

That’s why Legal & General were crowned ‘Britain’s Most Admired Company 2022’.

Providing homes for all demographics, ages, and tenures, we have delivered over 15,000 homes in the last 3 years

With a commitment to tackling the UK’s housing crisis, we believe it is more important than ever that we deliver the houses that our society needs to address structural shortages across every dimension of the market. We’re making this happen by creating specialist housing businesses, building houses to sell and rent, providing lively retirement communities, and seeking new ways to deliver affordable housing.

Through our Suburban Build to rent business, we are creating a high standard of homes for the rental market, focusing in suburban areas where quality rental stock is in short supply.

Rental Living by Legal and General is a brand name for Legal and General Suburban Build to Rent, a subsidiary of Legal and General Capital. Use the link below to visit our corporate website.

Committed to building sustainable homes

With a group wide commitment to enable all our new homes to operate at net zero carbon emissions from 2030, sustainability credentials are key in the design and build of our rental housing.

  • All of our homes will be EPC rated A or B, providing high standards of insulation and energy efficiency for our residents
  • We are phasing out gas boilers, in favour of energy efficient heat pumps that are powered by electricity, reducing the carbon emissions from our homes
  • Many of our homes will be fitted with solar panels and electric vehicle charging points
  • We are encouraging biodiversity by installing wildlife nest boxes, hedgehog highways and planting our green spaces with bee friendly flowers
