Selling a discounted for sale or shared equity property

It is a condition of buying a discounted for sale or shared equity property that you contact the Affordable Housing Team before you put the home on the market.

  • tell us you want to sell and give us details of your property with a current  RICS valuation, and we will let you know what to do next
  • once the property is on the market, the housing team have a set period of time (usually between 2 and 6 months, depending on the development) to allocate a buyer who meets eligibility criteria from received application forms. Application forms are assessed on a first come, first served basis. 
  • the property must be sold at the discounted price or lower even if we do not find an eligible buyer during the nomination period
