Yes, it is entirely possible, however it will mean taking on some of that role yourself. Make sure to handle the entire process carefully because it is a large financial and legal transaction.

Can you be more specific

You will need to arrange viewings for interested buyers yourself. Speak to them and agree on a time that is convenient to you before they come to see your house. Before entering into negotiations with a buyer, make sure you have decided on the lowest price you will drop to. This does not need to be the advertised asking price.

First you need to work out the right valuation for your house, which is how much you would reasonably like it to sell for.

Then, you need to get an Energy Performance Certificate before you put your property on the market, so it is worth getting this done before you start advertising your home. You will need to get a registered energy assessor to compile this for you.

Then, you must find a way to advertise the property yourself.

I intend to sell the property through an estate agent What I want to know iis do I have the same legal rights as an owner ?

The proprietorship section shows the current registered proprietor. This is likely to be the current owner. It will explain any special arrangements of how the property is owned. It may also contain information on how to transfer the property in the event of the death of one of the proprietors.

In order to determine that you would need to check the deeds.
