Whether you are a leaseholder who owns 100% of your home, or a shared owner who owns a proportion of your home, there a certain rules which you will need to follow.
How to sell your leasehold home
You can sell your leasehold home at any time for any reason.
Your lease normally contains a clause that says you must give us notice in writing within one month of selling your home. The notice must give us the date of the sale and the details of the new owner.
You must also pay us a reasonable fee for registering the new details. Your solicitor will normally deal with this.
How to sell your shared ownership home
If you want to sell your shared ownership home, we have a dedicated resales team to guide you through the process.
You can sell your share at any time after you have completed your purchase.
Energy Performance Certificates
Before your property goes on sale you will need to provide an Energy Performance Certificate (EPC). This tells you how energy efficient your home is on a scale of 'A' to 'G', with 'A' being the most energy efficient and 'G' being the least, with the average up to now being 'D'.
For more information about EPCs, visit the direct.gov website.
Please note: since 21 May 2010, homes marketed for sale no longer need a Home Information Pack (HIP).
