The New Supply Shared Equity (NSSE) scheme is a shared equity scheme from the Scottish Government, which was introduced to help people on low to moderate incomes buy an affordable new build home.

Through the NSSE scheme you can buy a new build home without having to fund its entire cost. You pay for the biggest share – between 51% and 80% of the home's cost – and the Scottish Government will fund the remaining share, which is held under a 'shared equity agreement'.

Eligible applicants can apply for funding of between 20% and 49% of the purchase price of a new build home at Glenforth Court.

To purchase a property at Glenforth Court, you must first reserve a plot by phoning Link Housing on 01324 417 135 and pay a £250 reservation fee. You will then be sent an online application form for the NSSE scheme. 

As part of the application, you will need to provide: 

  • Your current income including any pensions 
  • The level of mortgage you will be able to afford (if taking a mortgage) 
  • The level of personal contribution you will be able to make to the cost. You may keep £5,000 of any personal contribution you can make (e.g. from savings), above this, 90% of the balance will be treated as a contribution towards the cost of buying your home. 
  • Information about your household and current accommodation

If your application to the NSSE scheme is unsuccessful and Link cannot proceed with your application, the full reservation fee will be refunded.

If a reservation fee is paid and your application is accepted, but you later choose to withdraw, £100 will be refunded.
