Two new major schemes help first time buyers get onto the property ladder in Scotland

There are two major Government led initiatives to help first time buyers get onto the property ladder by helping them overcome the problems of large deposits which mortgage lenders require.

Open Market Shared Equity Scheme in Scotland

In a welcome development the Scottish Government announced recently that their shared equity scheme will be given an additional £10 million pounds so that the scheme can be made available to all eligible first time buyers.

MI New Home in Scotland

Another scheme, aimed at first time buyers buying a new build property, will see the government contribute 5% towards the deposit of the house leaving the purchaser to find only a 5% deposit themselves.
