  • There are options available, you could look at shared ownership or perhaps speak to a broker who can look for products which require a smaller deposit?

  • Although possibly very rare now and inadvisable, have you considered 100% mortgage - I haven't seen one for a few years....

  • Honestly, this isn't meant as offensive, but if you can't afford a deposit, you can't afford a house. This is one of the reasons the lending market collapsed. There are the costs of maintenance, boiler servicing, additional furnishing, insurance, contingency money, decoration, etc, etc. Rent cheap for a couple of years, scrimp and save, then buy.
