Minor Works Assistance (MWA) Loans

MWA is available to Manchester homeowners in receipt of an income-related benefit for the purpose of carrying out necessary works to your home.

The loan is interest-free and is only paid back when you sell your house and can be used for:

  • Replacing/ upgrading electrics and electrical installations
  • Upgrading gas installations
  • Repairs to windows
  • Drainage defects
  • Rebuilding yard walls
  • Replacing/ repairing guttering
  • Minor roof repairs
  • Repairs to plumbing and small general building repairs

We can help you to select a reputable and trustworthy contractor (builders, plumbers, roofers, electricians and so on) and will supervise the work whilst it is in progress. We charge a small fee for this service, which can be included in the loan amount.
