Getting help to buy your home

There are a number of schemes set up to help you buy a new home if you can't afford one:

Low cost initiative for first time buyers (LIFT)

If you would like to buy your own home but can't afford to pay the full market price for a property, the low cost initiative for first time buyers (LIFT) could help. The scheme is designed to help people on low incomes. When you apply for the scheme your financial circumstances will be assessed.

Shared ownership

Shared ownership is a scheme where applicants part-buy and part-rent a property from a registered social landlord. These properties are normally built by the registered social landlord specifically to help people get onto the home ownership ladder. You can find out more about shared ownership on mygov.scot website.
