If you own 100% of your property, the process is different. First you find a buyer, then ask your appointed solicitor to email us at email@example.com. Find out more here.
You appoint and pay them directly.
Before going ahead Check your lease length. If it is below 80-85 years it may affect your chances of selling. Get in touch and we will let you know your options for extending your lease to make your home easier to sell. Find out more here.
We need copies of your valuation report, EPC, photo ID and proof of address. We'll get your lease document for you and can arrange a new EPC if yours is more than ten years old (fees may apply). Find out more about what documents we’ll need.
Get a head start: You can start uploading documents straight after Step 1.
Once we have all your documents, we ask you to sign our Instruction to Sell form.
It’s easy on the My SO Resi portal. Host viewings yourself or use our viewing partner, Viewber. It’s your choice. A great idea is to set up lots of 15-minute slots on the same day – particularly weekends or evenings – so we can arrange open days. Read more about how viewings works.
Keep updated with buyer enquiries, viewings and feedback simply by signing in to My SO Resi.
You can do this at any stage – at the latest, once a buyer is found. You need a solicitor with experience of Shared Ownership leases and conveyancing. See a list of our recommended solicitors.
Once a buyer is found who meets all the financial and eligibility checks, one of our dedicated progression consultants will take over to help get your sale to completion.
Your SO Resi resales consultant calls to introduce themselves and to answer any questions you have.
We organise a suitable time for our partner, NicheCom, to professionally photograph your home, create a floor plan – and a new EPC if you need one.
We create your marketing listing and publish it on the largest Shared Ownership property websites, as well as Zoopla and Rightmove. Just check your listing on My SO Resi and approve it before it goes live. Read more here about how we market your property.
As well as marketing your home, we financially assess buyers before they view it. If a potential buyer wants to go ahead, we check their application to make sure they are eligible. Read our guide to preparing your property for viewing. >
Once an approved buyer is found, solicitors are appointed to work towards completion. Your SO Resi resales progression consultant works with everyone involved to help smooth the legal process.
