If you want to sell some share certificates, our postal service is quick and cost-effective. You don't even need to have an account with us. To check that your shares are covered by our service, simply call our Dealing team on 01296 41 42 43.

Selling your share certificates couldn't be easier. Just follow these three simple steps:

  • Download and print a certificate sales form
  • Complete and sign the form twice (sections 1 and 2)
  • Post us the form and certificates

Do you have a Share Account with us?

If you have a Share Account and are on our frequent dealing option, it is cheaper to sell your share certificates through your account. If you are on our standard dealing option, it is cheaper if the certificates you want to sell are worth less than £2500.

To sell your share certificates through your Share Account, firstly you need to add the shares to your account. Simply download an 'adding shares' form and post it to us with your certificates. Since they need to be moved from the registrar into your account, it can take up to 5 working days (we'll let you know when they've been added). You can then sell the shares online, by phone or post. Please note they will not be sold automatically.
