Leaseholders, shared owners and homeowners
Home owners are residents who own part or all of a Magna Housing home. This includes people who've bought a shared ownership home and leaseholders who've bought their home through the right to buy or right to acquire schemes.See more
Your rent mainly covers the use and occupation of your home, and some of the communal areas around your home. However, there are lots of services we offer which are also funded by your rent which may benefit you directly or indirectly.See more
We are committed to fair treatment for all, and believe that everyone must be given an equal chance to live, work and learn free from discrimination, prejudice and harassment.See more

Magna deals with large amounts of hazardous and non hazardous waste each year. The law means we have to separate waste into categories before we can dispose of, or recycle, it. Magna is charged about £100,000 a year for this.See more
