Help to Buy (Scotland) Affordable New Build Scheme is the shared equity scheme from the Scottish Government aimed at helping home-buyers purchase a new home with as little as 5% deposit.
The scheme is available to both first-time buyers and existing homeowners for new-build properties across Scotland with a maximum purchase price of £200,000.
Through Help to Buy (Scotland) buyers with a minimum 5% deposit can obtain assistance from the Scottish government of up to a maximum of 15% of the purchase price of their property, with the government holding its equity stake by way of a shared equity agreement and second-ranking. This could leave buyers only needing to secure an 80% mortgage with a high-street lender.
