Sell your shares by post

If you prefer to deal at the latest market price, our phone or online services may suit your requirements.

If you prefer to use the post, selling your shares is easy, however you will not know the share price in advance. To sell by post all you need to do is complete the form and send it to Link at the address shown on the form with all valid share certificates.

Your instruction will be combined with those of other shareholders and shares will be sold once a day; you will not know the share price obtained until after your shares have been sold. Aggregated orders may result in a large number of shares being dealt in the market which may result in a lower price being obtained or a delay in executing the order in full on the stock market. Link will not be responsible for any changes in the share price between the time you decide to deal and when the deal is executed.

Once your shares are sold, you will be sent a cheque, a full set of terms and conditions for your records and a sale advice detailing the share price obtained. If you hold 1-10 shares you can sell all of your shares free of charge. You will be charged 0.45% (minimum £15) when selling 11 shares or more which will be deducted from the sale proceeds.

If you need assistance or would like to be sent a printed version of the documents, please phone the helpline on 0371 664 0445 (Calls are charged at the standard geographic rate and will vary by provider. Calls outside the United Kingdom are charged at the applicable international rate. We are open between 8 am – 4.30 pm, Monday to Friday excluding public holidays in England and Wales).
