Help to Buy

Want to buy your dream home sooner rather than later? With Help to Buy you can purchase a new home with a 20% equity loan from the Government.

Help to Buy (Scotland)

Available to first-time buyers and existing homeowners, this scheme provides you with up to 15% of the purchase price of a new build home.

Shared ownership

Shared ownership is a great way to get onto the housing ladder if you can't afford the full purchase price of your home straight away.

Shared equity (Scotland)

Imagine buying a home and not having to pay the full price. How great would that be? Well that’s exactly what our Shared Equity Scheme can offer you.

Part exchange

With part exchange you have a guaranteed buyer and no lengthy chain to worry about with the prospect of it falling through.


Whether you’re first-time buyers or looking to remortgage, we are with you every step of the way to make sure buying your new build home is as easy as possible.

Assisted move

If you want to move into your new build home quickly but have property to sell, Assisted Move could help you sell your current home.
