Although many are accustomed to performing a kinyan when authorizing the sale of the chametz with their Rabbi, it is not technically necessary.  

If you normally do not sell chametz gamur (actual chametz like bread, cookies, etc) you may be lenient this year.  Generally, whenever you want to give up a minhag that you’ve been observing for years you have to perform hataras nedarim (nullifciation of the vow).  In this case, it is not necessary for the following reason.  If you just happened to have a one-off event, a she’as had’chak, it’s self-understood that when you have a minhag tov, once in a long while you get stuck and you won’t be able to do it.  The acceptance of the minhag was never intended to apply in these circumstances.
