Government issues model clauses for s106 agreements delivering First Homes

The Department for Levelling Up, Housing and Communities has published model clauses for use by local authorities and home builders in preparing s106 agreements that deliver First Homes through developer contributions, including First Homes exception sites.

The model clauses can be viewed here.

First Homes are discounted homes for first time buyers who meet certain eligibility criteria. The discount, eligibility criteria and terms of use are secured by a section 106 agreement.

The Department stressed that these model clauses “are not for use with any of the government’s grant-funded pilot programmes delivered through Homes England. If you are delivering First Homes as part of one of these pilot programmes, you should use the documents provided by Homes England for this purpose.”
