Encouraging Home Ownership

Scotland’s Open Market Shared Equity Scheme allowing people to buy a home without having to fund its entire cost has been raised by 9% across the country to reflect rising house prices.

You can find a downloadable booklet here Open Market Shared Equity Scheme – Buyer Information Leaflet

And information here: Open Market Shared Equity Scheme

The scheme allows people to buy a home without having to fund its entire cost and is available across Scotland to these people who face particular barriers to the housing market:

  • people aged 60 and over
  • first time buyers
  • social renters (people who rent from the council or a housing association)
  • disabled people
  • members of the armed forces
  • veterans who have left the armed forces within the past two years
  • widows, widowers and other bereaved partners of service personnel for up to two years after their partner has lost their life while serving
