Move up the property ladder with Help to Buy

Help to Buy is an initiative designed to help purchasers move up the property ladder. It currently offers financial assistance to anyone buying a home up to the value of £200,000.

Subject to certain criteria, under the incentive buyers only need to provide a 5% deposit to secure a new home, with the Scottish Government providing a maximum 15% equity stake in the property.

Help to Buy is available for a select number of properties at our Ellwood, Hopefiled Park and Monarch's Way developments. Below are some example figures for anyone interested in taking up the offer.
