Independent financial advisors (IFA)

Once you've found your shared ownership home you will need to complete a free financial assessment with an independent financial advisor (IFA) from our panel. The IFA will ask you questions and request documents which will help to confirm your financial eligibility and make sure you're in the right position to proceed.

When you've been approved by an IFA from our panel they'll be able to help you arrange your mortgage but you're able to use an IFA of your choice.

When we've received your completed financial assessment from the IFA and your Magna Housing application form, we'll contact you. Even if you are a cash buyer you will need to speak to one of the IFAs.

The financial advisers have been chosen because of their shared ownership experience.
