Helping first-time buyers and other eligible homebuyers purchase a newly built home in a private development anywhere in the Republic of Ireland.
The Government of Ireland (Department of Housing, Local Government and Heritage), in partnership with Participating Lenders, has introduced a Shared Equity Scheme to help you bridge the gap between your deposit and mortgage, and the price of your new home.
Participating Lenders do not advise or consult with consumers on the Terms & Conditions of the FHS. FHS independently and exclusively manages the administration of the Scheme, and all queries pertaining to the Scheme should be directed to the FHS.
This website provides an overview of the First Home Scheme. For further details on how the Scheme works, please download our Homebuyers Guide found on the Guides/Resources page.
