Question:

When is chometz sold on the 13th?

Answer:

For one who is selling his entire apartment or home as he will not be there for Pesach, or a specific part of his home which will be closed off for Pesach, and he wants to be exempt from doing bedikas chametz in the above locations. Some are stringent to make sure that these places are sold before the onset of the obligation of bediaks chametz, which commences at the beginning of the 14th, and arrange that these places be sold by the 14th.

The consensus of authorities is that this is a stringency, and in fact it is enough that one intends to sell these places the next day with the sale on the 14th, to exempt him from bedika the night before.
