Scotland's First Home Fund: Applications Now Closed
09 April 2021
Since our last update on Scotland’s First Home Fund, the uptake has been enormous and unfortunately has had to close quickly due to a record number of applicants. Sadly, with this type of Government scheme there is no guarantee or predictability on how long it will remain open.
Unfortunately the Scottish Government has said The First Home Fund is fully committed for 2020/2021 and applications are now closed. Any applications in progress but not yet submitted at the point of closure are unable to be processed.
They also state that any applications delayed into 2021/2022 due to the Covid-19 Pandemic will be funded provided an extension was requested in or before 12th March 2021.
The Help to Buy Smaller Developers Scheme and LIFT (Low-cost Initiative for First Time Buyers) schemes remain available.
