I'm looking to buy a house and have a help to buy ISA, I will be applying for a mortgage and I'm just a bit confused on when can I use my bonus-I thought it would be towards my cash deposit towards the house? And if so can I include my bonus on top of my deposit when calculating how much of a mortgage I need- so then take out less of a mortgage because I will have that bonus hopefully?
