FTBs can get on the ladder

Last week I was keen to make sure we do what we can to help FTBs find ways on the ladder, rather than tell them how impossible it is so they don’t bother saving, so this week, here’s some ways people can buy for under £200,000 even in London and under £125,000 around the rest of the country, with some even being just £75,000.

Please check the deposit required before you view a property as it can vary, but we have assumed you pay 5% deposit based on the share of the property you purchase ie not on the full purchase price, see: Share to Buy for more information.
