Shared Ownership

Allows households on modest incomes to get a ‘foot on the property ladder’ by purchasing a 25% or 50% or 75% share in a property.  An ‘occupancy charge’ is made to cover the remaining share of the property. 

Shared Equity Schemes

The Scottish Government has opened up access to the following shared equity schemes for people aged 60 and over without the requirement for a mortgage.

New Supply Shared Equity scheme

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

Open Market Shared Equity scheme

Grants are given to the Association to help applicants on a limited income part fund the price of a property on the open market.

Help to Buy (Scotland) Affordable New Build Scheme

A Scottish Government scheme helping first-time buyers and current owners purchase a new build home through a shared equity agreement.
