Can I put deposit down on house with benefit money?

I am on housing benefit, with my other benefit money is it possible to save some of this to put a deposit down on house to buy? Is it legal?

  • I don't see any problem with saving for a deposit, regardless of where your income originates from. You may however find that if you are on low-income, your mortgage options may be very limited, especially in the current climate.
