Selling Your Shared Ownership Property

Contact us if you're looking to sell your property. We will arrange for an independent RICS Qualified Surveyor to contact you to arrange for your property to be valued.  The charge for the valuation is £150.

Once the valuer has sent their report to us, we will write to you within 7 days detailing the sale price of your share.

Before you instruct an estate agent to sell your property we offer you the opportunity to market your property with the Fortis Living and Orbit Help to Buy website. This will be free of charge, if you wish for us to do this we will require digital photos of your property in  Jpeg format, along with a brief description.

You must ensure that your share in the property is actively marketed and advertised in the property press accordingly.  Fortis Living must be informed which estate agent you choose to use.  If you wish to change agents we must be informed.

Once a purchaser has been found for your share they must complete an application form to ensure that they are acceptable for the scheme.  No offer must be accepted without consent of the Association.

The Association must also receive a copy of the Memorandum of Sale with the offer and details of the legal representatives.

Upon completion the legal representatives will ensure that any legal charges held on the property are paid and discharged accordingly.

Please note that there will be a charge of £210.00 payable to us to cover the work involved in managing the sale through.
