Help to Buy (Scotland)

The popular Help to Buy (Scotland) scheme has returned for 2016.

The re-launched Help to Buy (Scotland) scheme is available once more on O'Brien Homes in Scotland up to a purchase price of £230,000

You could move into a brand new 4 bedroom detached home in East Kilbride for as little as £195,500.

With the Help to Buy (Scotland) scheme you'll only need a deposit of 5% to move into your brand new home.

The Scottish Government will provide equity funding of 15% of the value.

You take out a mortgage for 80% of the value.

There is no interest to pay on the Scottish Minister's stake.

Example:

Windermere 4 bed detached at Dale Lane, East Kilbride £230,000

Purchaser deposit of 5% £ 11,500

Mortgage of 80% £184,000

Scottish Government equity stake £ 34,500

When do I need to repay the equity stake?

There is no deadline by which the equity support must be repaid to the Scottish Government. The scheme runs indefinitely until the purchaser decides to sell their home.

Are there any restrictions on who can buy?

The new home must be your only residence and you must not own another home. If you do own another home you are expected to sell this before you purchase a home under the scheme. The scheme is not available to assist buy-to-let investors and you may not part exchange your existing home to buy a new home.
