Answered by: Kevin Stewart 25 September 2018
Information on the incomes of households purchasing homes through the Help to Buy (Scotland) Scheme is based on sales ‘log form’ information returned by participating households. Data on the median and mean household incomes is published in the latest Help to Buy (Scotland) Monitoring: characteristics of households report 2016-17 by quarter since the scheme began. The report can be found at https://beta.gov.scot/publications/help-to-buy-scotland-monitoring-characteristics-of-households-report-2016-2017/ .
