No deposit needn't mean no mortgage now, with a crop of new deals aimed at first-time buyers who are struggling to get on the housing ladder.
Last week Bath Building Society announced it was loosening its purse strings, and would be offering 100pc mortgages again.

How many parents are going to for this? Equity ≠ cash!
Housing and greed has turned the UK into an insane casino.
