However that is lower than rent on an equivalent property. I definitely recommend buying a property - any property, within reason - over renting in London.

The mortgage is £272,000, as 20% is paid by goverment. Yes, you need to repay in 5 years or pay interest but still, you will pay less in first 5 years. Also, you get lower interest because of this money - around 1.8% to be precise so it's around 1000 per month for the first 5 years.

mortgage amount is actually lower as I forgot to include your own 5% deposit.

I think they're brilliant. I can't wait until it's finished. That stretch of the South Bank will become sensational.
