Family finance is very important and getting it all organised will help you in the long run.

Having a bigger deposit is better is our eyes, in simple terms, this is because the lender will have to make a decision to accept your mortgage application or not and they will think about the challenges you may encounter within the life of the mortgage, this could include temporary falls in house prices, periods of unemployment and periods of a reduced income or disposable income. The bigger the deposit the borrower can put down the less exposed the lender is to changes. A bigger deposit will also make for smaller monthly repayment as well, as you will have a smaller mortgage to pay back your payments will also be smaller.

It is a good idea to set some money aside for moving costs. It is important to budget for everything as buyers may be liable for stamp duty and will need to pay solicitor and surveyors fees. The actual cost of moving from A to B, furnishing and equipping the new home, it can be useful to have a budget for unforeseen expenses, this will be any problems are things that need to be changed in the property that you only noticed once you had moved into it.

You can check to see if the government has any help to buy schemes available to help people who want to buy new-built homes. Provided that buyers can put down at least a deposit of 5%, the government will lend you up to 20% of the purchase price of the property. This means that the buyer only needs to get a mortgage for the remaining 75% of the purchase price of the property.
