Providing individual mortgage advice; unique to you

First Home Fund Scheme – 18th December 2019

First Home Fund Scheme is a Shared Equity Scheme which the Scottish Government have created a £150 million pot to provide first-time buyers with up to £25,000 towards the purchase of a home or 49% of their purchase price whichever is lower. The scheme will run until the end of this Parliament in March 2021 or until the £150m has been allocated.

Shared equity means the Scottish Government will keep a financial stake in the property so you do not have to fund all of it and you will own the property outright but the Scottish Government will have security over the percentage provided.
