The Scottish Government's Help to Buy (Scotland) Affordable New Build Scheme helps first-time buyers and current owners purchase a new build home through a shared equity agreement.

The Help to Buy (Scotland) scheme helps you buy a new-build property from a participating house builder with a loan of up to 15% of the property price from the Scottish Government. Buyers must be able to fund at least 85% of the purchase price of a selected property through a combination of mortgage and a minimum of 5% deposit (if one is required by their lender).

The Scottish Government receives its percentage back when you sell or if you choose to buy out the Government Equity Stake.

The Scottish Government has recently confirmed funding of £195 million for the scheme over the next 3 years.

The maximum threshold sale price for the scheme is as follows:

  • For financial year 2017/18 (transactions concluding up to 31 March 2018) the threshold price is £200,000
  • For financial year 2018/19 (transactions concluding up to 31 March 2019) the threshold price is £200,000

The scheme opened to applications on 1 March 2016 for house purchases completing after 1 April 2016. You can complete the online application form on the below link.
