Sell or sublet your home

If you’re a leaseholder you’ll need to sell your property on the open market and pay all outstanding service charges when you sell your property.

If you’re selling your home in the first 5 years you must:

  • pay back some of the discount you were awarded
  • offer to sell the property back to the council and give us first right of refusal

If you’re selling your home in the first 10 years you must offer it to us before putting it on the open market.


You must get permission to sublet your property. If you get permission, you must turn off the gas, electricity and water supplies from when you leave the property and before the subtenant moves in.
