Help to Buy (Scotland) and Cruden Will Help YOU Buy!

At Cruden Homes, we can make the reality of owning a new home possible. Working in line with the Scottish Government procedures, we will qualify you for the Help to Buy Scheme. We will support you on the journey through the buying process to secure the home of your dreams.

Help to Buy is open to all buyers from 1st March 2016, so even if you are not a first time buyer, help is still available for you, and with only a 5% deposit to pay, the time to buy your new home could be closer than you think!

The Scottish Government will loan you up to 15% of the purchase price of your new home as an ‘equity loan’. You, as the buyer, will then fund 85% of the purchase price through the combination of your mortgage and 5% deposit. See our examples below for approximate breakdowns:
