Home Ownership

The Council has developed a range of schemes to help Bracknell Forest residents buy their own home.

Council Mortgage Scheme

This scheme is available to help residents buy shared ownership properties. The Council can offer a mortgage for 95% of the shared equity value of the property. The purchaser will need to provide a 5% deposit.  Please select BFC Mortgages under Topics on the right for more detail.

Cash Incentive Scheme

If you are a tenant of a Housing Association (Registered Social Landlord) living in the Bracknell area and you occupy a family sized property the Council can offer you a grant of up to £60,000 to help you purchase a property on the open market.  Please select this scheme under Topics on the right for more detail.

BFC MY Homebuy

BFC My Homebuy is an exciting new scheme to help Bracknell Forest Residents buy a home. BFC My Homebuy is an equity purchase scheme which enables local residents to buy a minimum equity share of 50% of a home. Further equity shares in the property can be purchased over a period of time until the property is owned outright.

Applicants must be resident in the borough and have been resident in the borough for the last five years.  Please select this scheme under Topics on the right for more detail.
