Open market shared equity scheme

You can buy a home without having to fund its entire cost with help from the Scottish Government.

You'll pay for the biggest share – usually between 60% and 90% of the home's cost. The Scottish Government will hold the remaining share. This will be under a shared equity agreement with you.

The thresholds have increased in Angus. This means if you meet the criteria you could now buy a:

  • one bedroom property up to the value of £60,000
  • two-bedroom property up to £100,000
  • three-bedroom property up to £130,000,
  • four-bedroom property up to £180,000,
  • five-bedroom property up to £225,000.

More information on the open market shared equity scheme is available on the mygov.scot website.
