You can sell your home, or share in a home, at any time.

When you sell your Shared Ownership home, you give us the chance to nominate a buyer.
This means that for a period of eight weeks we advertise your home to people on our waiting lists and on this website.
If we find a buyer for you, we’ll charge a fee for this sale. If we don’t find a buyer you can sell your home through an estate agent.

We want to make the process as easy for you as we can, so we’ve put all the information you need in one place. Here’s what you need to know.
