The range of circumstances in which a charity might wish to share its property is almost as diverse as the charity sector itself. For some, sharing space is a crucial means to achieving charitable objectives and collaborating with other organisations, whilst for others it is a useful way of raising additional income. 

Catherine Flexer features in Charity Finance to describe the common pitfalls of sharing property and how best to avoid them: "Charities that share their property need to plan ahead and be aware of what action to take if the agreement breaks down."

'Sharing property: common pitfalls and how to avoid them' is available to read in the February 2020 issue of Charity Finance on page 30. 

Catherine is an associate in the charity and social business team. She specialises in property matters, including areas where charity law and property law intersect.
