You are free to sell your home at any time, but you must notify us in writing of your intention to sell the property. We will then arrange for your property to be independently valued (you will be liable for the cost of valuation). Unless you own your home outright, you will have a ‘nomination period’ in your lease. This is normally 8-12 weeks, during which time we will nominate a suitable buyer for you.
Although a fee will be charged for this service, it will usually be less than an estate agent will charge. If we fail to find a buyer within this period, you are free to sell your share in the property privately. If this happens you will be responsible for any estate agent fees. If you own your property outright (i.e. you have staircased up to 100%), you are entitled to sell your home to anyone you choose EXCEPT in the case of a key worker property purchase, which can only be sold onto another approved key worker.
Further details concerning the sale of your home will be contained within your lease. Your solicitor will be responsible for advising you of any conditions or restrictions in relation to this.
