Charity Owning Property

As a charity owning a property you need to maximise your investment and exploit your property assets effectively.

Our work with many of our charity clients involves development, construction, acquisitions and disposals through to commercial and residential sales, purchases, lettings, relocation and social finance.

We regularly advise on significant and often complex transactions involving covenants, charitable trusts, finance and negotiations. Using experts from our dedicated charities team we combine property expertise with sector specific advice across all legal disciplines including:

  • Grant of a lease
  • Grants of rights of way, rights of light and other easements
  • Licences for occupation
  • Planning agreements
  • Property management agreements
  • Purchase, sale and developments
  • Service level agreements

Working with some of the leading not-for-profit organisations, civil society organisations, schools, social enterprises and housing providers we provide sector expertise to a range of charities including the Charity Tax Group, Charities Aid Foundation and two elected members of the Executive Committee of the Charity Law Association.
