Home Ownership Register

Our Home Ownership Register is important – it may help you find your dream home.

It is for anyone seeking a home in North Dorset, Purbeck, East Dorset, West Dorset and Weymouth & Portland – whether that’s open market, affordable, shared-ownership or rental.

You may be young or old, living in the area or seeking to move to Dorset for work or to be near friends and family.

By signing up you’ll receive our newsletter about all the latest developments in the property market locally – including new schemes with planning consent or properties released for sale by housebuilders as well as government developments or shared ownership initiatives. It is mainly for people who want to buy, but we also want to hear from those who want to rent.

The register won’t give you priority but it increases awareness of newly available homes in your area – and some developers or house-sellers may contact you first hand to make you aware of opportunities.

It will give us insights into the type of homes people want, which we will be able to pass onto developers.

The Home Ownership Register is for people who are ready to buy a home. This is different from the Dorset Home Choice Housing Register which is for people in need of social rented properties.

The easiest way to sign up to the new Home Ownership Register is to go online where you are asked to fill in a short form about your requirements.

We also have separate registers for Self-Build schemes and for social housing.
