  4. Return the Resales Form along with the RICS Valuation 
  5. The agent markets your property at 100% Freehold (not as a shared ownership) and you allow the viewings to take place. 
  6. You can agree the best offer (as long as it is at or above RICS valuation) and update Heylo.

How do I work out the discounted value?

With Your Home you are entitled to a discounted value.  Please check your original lease for the percentage.If, for example it was 50%, then you are entitled to a 50% share of any value increase on your unpurchased share. Once you return your Resales Form and we know the agreed offer price, the Resales team will be able to give you the figures that you will receive at completion based on the Your Home calculator.

We strongly suggest you work with a solicitor who has worked with Shared Ownership before. Heylo can send you a list of potential solicitors that have this experience.
