Funding and monitoring information
We collect information to monitor the Help to Buy (Scotland) Fund. This includes a regular report on the number of sales and financial information associated with this, the monitoring information report and a report on the characteristics of those who have participated in the fund. Monitoring information for the previous Help to Buy Scotland scheme is also available. These data are not Official Statistics or National Statistics and they have been collated by Scottish Government as management information for the purposes of policy monitoring only.
