Rent a home
Magna provides and manages good quality housing in the South West of England. Our homes are for people who cannot afford to buy the accommodation they need on the open housing market.
Most of our homes are across these local authority areas: North Dorset, South Somerset, Sedgemoor, Taunton Deane, West Dorset, West Somerset and Weymouth & Portland.
For most of our properties, if you're not already a Magna resident, you will need to apply for a home through your local authority. See how to apply for more information.
We use a variety of occupation agreements when letting our residential properties. Our tenancy policy sets out the circumstances in which we will grant each type of agreement. We aim to target resources at those in housing need, make best use of our properties and ensure that they are occupied in accordance with our charitable objectives. Our lettings policy has more details about this, and we also have a local lettings plan policy.
Buy a home
Own your own home for less than you thought! Ever considered owning your own home but found current housing prices and interest rates too steep? If the answer is yes, then maybe you should consider shared ownership.
Shared ownership, also known as part rent, part buy or New build HomeBuy is a great way to get your foot on the property ladder. It's exactly what the name suggests - you buy a share in your home and rent the remaining share from a registered landlord. You can then choose to buy more shares in your home as and when you can afford to. To find out more about shared ownership please click here.
