    I rent somewhere, but my mum bought her first (and still current) house at the age of almost 25 back in the summer of 1995. She managed to do this despite being a single mom with me to look after. I seriously doubt she'd be able to now!

    You mean she gave you the deposit money? As a mortgage provider would not have lent to you if you had borrowed the deposit
    No, she lent it to me... I was never asked by the mortgage people where the deposit had come from! We purchased the house together, so I guess that might be why they never asked. We own it 50/50 but only I live there. She just pays half the mortgage, works very well for us (me more than her I guess!).
