It is most important that all chametz is disposed of or sold before Passover. Although the non-Jew usually sells it back after Passover, this is an entirely valid and legal sale, both in Jewish and English Law. The chametz to be sold should be securely locked away in a room or cupboard, which will not be used over Passover. It is customary to empower the local rabbi to sell one's chametz and to sign the rabbi's contract. If this is difficult, you can use one of the links below to fill in the KLBD Sale of Chametz form online, or to download a form to fill in and send by post. The form declares that:
I hereby appoint Rabbi J Conway to act as my agent and sell all chametz that will be in my possession as of Monday 10th April 2017 at 11.55am.
I hereby authorise him to act in my stead, and empower him to do all that is required to make such a sale valid in order that I conform to all the halachic requirements and restrictions regarding the possession of chametz over Pesach. I hereby also make any Agreement of Sale (shtar mechirah) that he may use for this purpose, part of this authorisation.
