What do I do when I want to sell?

If you want to sell your home, the Lease normally states that you must inform Johnnie Johnson Housing first. You should inform us in writing (email is acceptable) that you want to move and we will undertake to find a purchaser for your share from our waiting list. This helps to make sure that as many people as possible benefit from shared ownership.

We will inform you in writing of the charges that will apply on completion of the sale.
The majority of leases contain a clause giving Johnnie Johnson Housing the right to nominate a prospective purchaser from our waiting list; if, however, we do not have anyone interested in purchasing your home then we will give permission for the property to be sold on via an Estate Agent. If an Estate Agent is instructed we must be informed when a purchaser is found and we will need to complete an assessment with them to ensure they meet the allocation criteria applicable.
