Somehow I don't think the value of the house was mentioned at the inquest.

Only £1.5m?

Probably halved in value coz there was a brown family in the neighbourhood. They did warn us.

Snide and patronising bollocks:

How millennials CAN afford to buy a house in London (but you'll have to make your own sandwiches for lunch, give up city breaks and forget the new iPhone)

Of course, one of the questions you're asked when you apply for a mortgage is whether you've got an iPhone and make your own sandwiches...

And produce 30k from the bank of Mum and Dad.

Thing is, I don't go often to be honest and wouldn't spend more than £20 on it a week, I've not taken a foreign holiday in years, my holidays consist of going to Cornwall and the odd city break.

I do bring in lunch from home and I do eat at home a lot.

I doubt for some reason if I cut out anything else that I'd raise over more than a grand and quite frankly why would I want to be miserable? It's another one of those utterly dreadful articles about how to save for a mortgage, same can be seen when it's two smug gits who have a house in some godawful place and work in two jobs that I think I'd kill myself doing.

It often has hidden catches of living at home rent free for about 4 years or a generous donation from Mum and Dad, I did one of those debt calculator things and stretched it right back, I'd be able to save roughly about £250 a month and be as miserable as sin. And for what? To own a bit of a house after 4 years with additional debt.

I have £7,000 in my savings of course that might have been enough for a deposit about 20-30 years ago.
