First Homes

First Homes is a new tenure of affordable housing which offers properties for sale with a discount of 30% on the market value to first time buyers. The discount will be on the property in perpetuity and so the property will remain as a First Home through subsequent sales.  

Our adopted guidance note for First Homes is available to download. More information on First Homes can be found on GOV.UK's First Homes pages.

North Kesteven District Council has a role to play in the purchasing of a First Home and so if you have any queries or questions regarding a First Homes application being dealt with by us, or you would like any further information on First Homes, please email
