Mortgage lending for home buyers increased for the fourth month in a row in May, according to the Bank of England's report on lending to individuals.
Yet the number of mortgage products available has reduced rapidly since the credit crunch began. First time buyers and customers with smaller deposits or with little equity may still struggle to find a suitable deal.
If you need help obtaining a mortgage or want the latest advice, you can talk to a panel of experts on Wednesday's Money Box Live.
How much can you borrow and what sort of deposit will be required?
Is now a good time to buy a fixed rate mortgage or a tracker?
Should you remain on a Standard Variable Rate?

Where can you find advice and help?
