How much I need to save for my deposit?

Bank only lends you some portion of money either the purchase amount of the property or the property valuation. So you have to use some of your money to buy the property- a deposit. However, except the deposit money, there are other costs associated with buying a property and taking out a mortgage. Most common ones that are applied to most of the buyers are Stamp duty, valuation fees and Land registry fees. There are often unexpected costs too in buying a property, so it's a good idea to have a reserve fund to cover them.
