You will need a deposit of at least 10% of the property value unless you are buying at a discount. How can you raise 10% if you can't settle your existing debts? Clear them first. Mike



Yes Mike is of course right. Many people rush into buying a home without working out their true circumstances first. 10% deposit is good, however i would always suggest 15% is even better and leaves you in a better position, getting a better mortgage quote.



Hi there Like all the other guys who have posted on here 10% is the minimum deposit you would have to find to purchase a property...However, you would need to look at your existing commitments and ensure that you are still in position to maintain these in the way you have been before commiting yourself to any more debt...It sounds like you have kept to your plan which is excellent, I would always recommend speaking to someone and going through all your options first before taking that step. 10% is a lot to find but you can do it with the right structure in place. Hope that helps. Rachel@abcfinancial
