Question:

If I’m leaving town for all of Pesach on Thursday before bedikat chametz, when do l check and burn my chametz.
I’m going to a time zone further ahead that my usual place of residence as well and I’m pretty sure of the halacha for selling it; make sure the sale goes thru in my temporary residence before Chag starts there so l don’t technically own any chametz on Pesach. But if you could clarify that that is correct…
Thank you in advance for your help.

Answer:

Yes, make sure that when the time the chametz prohibition starts [not the chag itself] where you are located, your chametz has been destroyed or sold. If you are leaving your home empty, presumably you arranged to lease your entire house to a non Jew to exempt you from bedikas chametz there. If this will leave you without bedikas chametz [you will miss the bedika in your residence for Pesach], you could leave over a room or other area in your house and perform bedika the night before you leave [without a bracha].
