lsap is not for a deposit, its to assist first time buyers with surveyors fees etc

I think you'll find it is. If you don't know what you're on about, then I suggest you keep quiet rather than give crap advice. Note the highlighted part-you CAN use it as a deposit.

02.0404. Scope of LSAP. LSAP is for Service personnel and is not related to other Government funded schemes, such as the Key Worker Living programme. LSAP is intended to assist towards the balance of the purchase price (taking into account, for example, legal expenses, surveyor's fees, land registration and estate agent's fees) when buying a property for which a Building Society, Local Authority, recognised Bank or Insurance Company is willing to advance a mortgage.
Danny, I'm a traveler (ha boss, I'll tarmac your drive for you etc etc :D ) and go to my pad at weekends. I live 190 miles away from my unit and I get about £220 a month GYH. You're looking at around or just under £300 a month (but you'll have to check the current figures which get updated 1 Aug each year).
