COVID-19-Pocket-Living

COVID-19 update


Despite last year’s challenges there is good news from Pocket: we launched three new developments, helping more of London’s first-time buyers get onto the housing ladder. We still have a full team working to conduct socially-distanced viewings safely and in line with government guidance, or we’re able to offer detailed virtual viewings as an alternative. We’re also now approaching our 1,000th home – with several developments in the pipeline for London’s middle earners.

The enthusiasm for Pocket homes that we have recently seen from city makers has left us feeling energised and optimistic about our future of creating home ownership opportunities for middle earning Londoners. We’ve seen a real surge in Pocket registrations, showing that there is a big appetite in the market for Londoners looking to move into a home of their own.

Addiscombe Grove CR0

Our landmark new development in Croydon – Addiscombe Grove CR0 – is selling fast, and we’re excited to now be able to offer viewings to city makers living or working in any London borough. Harbard Close IG11 in Barking is also available to city makers from any London borough, and our on-site show home is now available for viewings (by appointment only). Gardner Close E11 in Redbridge is fully reserved but you can join the waiting list. If you are interested in any of these developments, register for a My Pocket account:

Our Pocket Edition homes at West Green Place N17 are all reserved, but contact us if you’d like to join our waiting list. Buyers can benefit from the current stamp duty holiday allowing for considerable savings. Contact us to find out more.

Following our previous award-winning development in Waltham Forest, Gainsford Road E17, we’re happy to announce that we will be returning to E17 to build at Forest Road. We’ll be bringing 90 more affordable Pocket homes to Waltham Forest – stay tuned for further updates. Also in Waltham Forest, we’ll be delivering 196 homes in Leyton.

We’re open and can’t wait to safely show you what might be your new home. Please register with us as the first step to booking a viewing but if you have any specific questions get in touch with our sales team on 020 7291 3683 or email sales@pocketliving.com.

We have homes for sale in some fantastic developments, including:

Harbard Close IG11 in Barking and Dagenham
Addiscombe Grove CR0 in Croydon
Gardner Close E11 in Redbridge is fully reserved but you can join the waiting list

Detailed virtual viewings are available as an alternative to an on-site viewing; these offer a 3D tour of our show home and the chance to discuss the scheme in detail and any questions you have with a sales consultant. All on-site viewings will be conducted in accordance with government guidelines for the safety of both customers and staff, and all details and PPE needed to ensure everyone’s safety will be provided.

We’re able to guide our existing buyers remotely through the sales process to the point of exchange. When it comes to setting a completion date, we now offer a virtual home tour via the Pocket App alongside a socially distanced visit of your new home. We’re now also able to arrange for key collection on the day of completion with minimal contact.

If you already own a Pocket home, please continue to contact our customer care team with any enquiries. Please note that there may be a slightly delayed response to tickets that are not deemed to be an emergency.

We would like to extend a heartfelt thank you to all of our customers, contractors and stakeholders who have been by our side in these difficult times. We have been touched by the stories of kindness that have emerged from our Pocket communities.
