For your first year, a good general fertiliser biased towards nitrogen. Autumn give a good one biased towards phosphates and potash. Next spring, use your lawn taylored fertilisers.

Similar to Liparis.
Lawns can be fed as soon as they start actively growing in early Spring i.e. late March to April to maintain vigour and to ensure grasses leave no room for weeds and moss.
Use a Spring/Summer lawn food. If you are removing the clippings from your lawn then it is particularly important to feed throughout the growing season every six to eight weeks.
Autumn feed must be with a specific Autumn lawn food that is high in phosphates and potash and low in nitrogen to encourage strong root growth rather than leaf growth.
