What is First Home Fund?

First Home Fund is a new scheme launched by the Scottish Government to help first-time buyers in Scotland purchase a home.

  • The Scottish Government will provide an interest free equity loan of up to £25,000
  • You need to provide a minimum deposit of 5% of the purchase price
  • Your mortgage must be at least 25% of the purchase price
  • You must be a first-time buyer who, does not own, or has not previously owned, a property. If you are applying for a joint mortgage, only one applicant needs to be a first-time buyer to qualify for the scheme.
First Home Fund

With First Home Fund, you own the property outright, the Scottish Government will contribute a maximum of 49% equity loan based on the property valuation or purchase price, whichever is lower, up to a maximum of £25,000. The Scottish Government equity loan is only repayable when the home is sold.
