New Supply Shared Equity (NSSE) scheme 

Although there are no further NSSE schemes planned, vacancies arising through re-sales are advertised.  NSSE properties are allocated based on criteria agreed with the local authority, the Scottish Government and the Association.

NSSE aims to help people on low to moderate incomes to purchase a new build home where it is sustainable for them to do so.

Applicants should be:-

  • First-time buyers, such as those living in social housing;
  • People in the Armed Forces or veterans, widows, widowers and other partners of service personnel;
  • People living in private rented housing or with relatives;
  • People who have experienced a significant change in household circumstances;
  • People with a disability who own a house which doesn’t suit their needs;
  • People aged 60 and over
