What is the Open Market Shared Equity Pilot?
The Open Market Shared Equity Pilot aims to help people on low incomes who wish to own their own home but who cannot afford to pay the full price for a house. Shared equity means the Scottish Government will keep a financial stake in the property so you do not have to fund all of it. You will pay the majority share in the property – normally between 60% - 90% of the price and own the property outright but the Scottish Government will have security over the remaining share.
