Metropolitan shared owners (leaseholders) who wish to sell their home should contact Metropolitan.
Your lease will usually contain a clause stating that your Shared Ownership home must be offered for sale by Metropolitan for a period of eight weeks to priority Shared Ownership home buyers. If your home is not sold by Metropolitan during this time, then you can sell your home on the open market through an estate agent.
If you are an Equity Loans customer, you'll need to follow the same procedure as you would do for staircasing. This will involve having an independent valuation carried out. No offers for the purchase of your home should be accepted until the amount due to Metropolitan on completion has been advised and accepted.
There may also be an administrative charge for dealing with your application.
Here is a list of Independent Financial Advisers (IFAs).
