Home ownership

First Time Buyers Scheme

The First Time Buyers Scheme is an opportunity for Hillingdon residents to become homeowners.

Following a high level of applications, the First Time Buyers Scheme has now closed for 2019. If and when further funding is confirmed, the scheme will reopen in our new financial year, which begins in April 2020.

The scheme is exclusively for first-time buyers who have lived in Hillingdon for the last 10 years and have funds to pay a minimum 7.5% deposit. The council tops up your deposit with a grant to assist applicants purchasing a home suitable for their needs, in an area of their choice within Hillingdon. Funding is limited and applications are processed on a first come first served basis.

If you have already bought through the scheme, you can remove the legal charge.
