First Home Fund Update
The First Home Fund is fully committed for 2021-22 and applications are now closed.
The First Home Fund is run by the Scottish Government and aims to help first-time home buyers purchase a property. Up to £25,000 is available to all first-time buyers towards the purchase of both new build and existing properties. A first-time buyer is anyone who does not own, or has previously owned, a property in Scotland or anywhere else in the world. In order to take part in the scheme, you will be required to provide a minimum deposit of 5% (subject to individual lender requirements, but any amount over valuation must be cash funded) and your mortgage must be at least 25% of the purchase price.
