Open Market Shared Equity Scheme

The Open Market Shared Equity Scheme helps first time buyers on low to moderate incomes to buy a home on the open market (within a certain price threshold) where this is sensible and sustainable for them to do so.

Although the scheme is currently open to help all first time buyers, it is also open to priority group applicants which include social renters (in other words, people who rent a property from either a local authority or a housing association), disabled people, people aged 60 and over, members of the armed forces, veterans who have left the armed forces within the past two years, and widows, widowers and other partners of service personnel for up to two years after their partner has been killed whilst serving in the armed forces.
