Help to Buy (Scotland) Affordable New Build Scheme is not available in conjunction with any other offer. Buyers will be required to contribute a minimum 85% of the purchase price of a home through a combination of a mortgage and deposit. A minimum of a 25% mortgage is required to participate. Buyers will be able to obtain assistance from the Scottish Government of up to a maximum of 15% of the purchase price (subject to the maximum permitted threshold price of £200,000).

The Scottish Government will hold its equity stake by way of a shared equity agreement with the buyer, secured by way of a second-ranking standard security over the buyer’s title to the property. Terms and conditions apply. Also subject to mortgage lenders criteria. YOUR HOME MAY BE REPOSSESSED IF YOU DO NOT KEEP UP REPAYMENTS ON YOUR MORTGAGE OR ANY OTHER DEBT SECURED ON IT. The prices of homes supported by the scheme will progressively reduce each year, with a maximum value of £200,000 in 2017/18 and £175,000 in 2018/19.
