Thinking of selling your shared ownership home?
The rules for selling your home are set out in your lease. They are not exactly the same for all leases, so this information is just a general guide.
If you are a shared owner and you want to sell your share in the property, you should give us a chance to find a buyer for you. Your lease will tell you how much time we have to find a buyer for your home. This is known as the nomination period and usually lasts 8 weeks. The purpose of the nomination period is to offer to your home to those who are priority for low cost home ownership again, it can also save you money on agents' fees.
If we can't find a buyer for your home by the end of the nomination period, you can sell your home on the open market.
