First Homes scheme

Helping local first-time buyers and key workers onto the property ladder

If you’re an eligible first-time buyer, you may be able buy a home for 30% to 50% less than its market value. This offer is called the First Homes scheme launched in June 2021 as another government initiative to help first-time buyers get on the property ladder.

The home can be a new home built by a developer or a home you buy from someone else who originally bought it as part of the scheme. The First Homes scheme is only available in England.
