The Working Lunch website will take you through the basics.

As for a specific lender, I used my local building society (Saffron Walden Herts & Essex) and they were very friendly and helpful, so it may be worth your while to look to the ones in your area before going to the big banks.

A 100% mortgage is pure evil, don't do it.

That's my advise.

Scottish Widows do a 102% mortgage for graduates - I think interest is 5.04% up to 5.84% in year 5.

I'm about to get one. I would rather use the bank's money to get a home, not my own thank you. Also, do interest only - it makes it cheaper at the start.

100% is not so bad.... just if you can make an extra payment every year makes a huge difference. Or put down an extra $100/month... something like that. If you can put 20% down.... that is great because you won't have to pay for the PMI (for us about $60/month wasted). But if they offer you 0, 3, 5, 10% down etc., go for the low one.... it makes a very nominal difference in your monthly payments. For example: ours is a $150,000 loan. We put down 3%.... if we had put down 10% it only made a difference of $15 dollars per month over the 30 year loan.... so we pay a little extra.... it all makes a difference.

The truth of the matter is that the first, albeit sarcastic, comment was the right one. People's circumstances differ hugely, and you need professional advice, not from a group of people on a site like this.

Check out some of the publications such as Which as well.

Buying a house is the biggest purchase of your life, and moving a mortgage is the second biggest. Get some proper help.
