    Renting with MHA

    You will find our homes in some of the major towns such as Abergavenny, Chepstow, Caldicot and Monmouth, as well as the smaller rural communities.  Our homes tend to be referred to as social or affordable housing and are cheaper than renting from a private landlord.



    Why rent from MHA?

    When you rent a home from MHA, you’re not just assured of a quality property, but also a first-rate level of support from the moment you pick up your keys. Here’s some the great benefits renting a home with us will give you:

    • Peace of mind with a 24/7 repair helpline.
    • A secure long-term contract.
    • Support if you need it, such as managing your finance, help with employment, training, health and wellbeing and lots more.
    • A landlord that puts customers first.


    Monmouthshire Homesearch

    To qualify for a social housing property you will need to register on the Monmouthshire Homesearch waiting list.  This is the social housing waiting list for the County of Monmouthshire and is managed by MHA on behalf of 5 housing partners; Monmouthshire Council Council, Pobl, Melin, MHA and United Welsh.




    Register on Monmouthshire Homesearch

    Once you’ve registered, you’ll be able to view all affordable housing that is currently available in Monmouthshire.


    Please be aware that there is a very high demand for social housing and as a result it may take years for you to be offered a property. Social housing is offered to those in greatest need.

    Make sure you explore all housing options that may be available to you:

    A scheme we offer to assist people to get onto the property ladder.
    MHA HomeShare
