If you want to sell your home or sell your share, you will need to call our sales team on 0300 2000 116 or email them on firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you want to sell your shared ownership home, you are required under your lease to let us market it for you.
As a homeowner, you have the right to sell your home. If you want to sell your shared ownership home, you can do one of two things:
When you arrange the valuation, you need to make sure it is done by an independent Chartered Surveyor, registered with the Royal Institute of Chartered Surveyors, who is not linked to an estate agent or lender.
Tell the surveyor about any improvements you have made and ask them to give you two valuations: one valuation taking into account your improvements and one not.
The valuation is valid for three months, which means the sale must be completed within this time, otherwise you will need to pay for another valuation.
Once you have received your valuation and you have decided you want to sell, let us know in writing. Your shared ownership lease sets out a timescale – usually 6 to 8 weeks – within which we can find potential buyers. If we don’t find a buyer within this timescale, you can put your home on the market with an estate agent. You will be responsible for their fees.
You must not accept an offer that is less than the valuation given by the surveyor. When you have accepted an offer, write to us giving us the name and full address of your solicitor. We will then contact our solicitor, who will deal directly with your solicitor.
