Charities deal with property in a variety of ways, sometimes via relatively simple arrangements and sometimes via bespoke agreements involving complex issues of charity and trust law. Our specialist charity property lawyers have a wealth of experience in helping navigate these issues.
Our approach is based on a deep understanding of the sector enabling us to craft practical solutions to meet your needs. We work to understand and achieve your objectives (which often involve more than a purely financial outcome) and to find the best ways to work within your constraints. We pride ourselves on offering a service which gets to the root of a problem rather than simply ticking legal boxes.
Our experienced team are able to deal with a wide range of property matters affecting charities, for example:
- property strategy, development, sales, purchases, leases, lettings, licences and secured lending
- community asset transfer agreements
- unravelling trust and title issues relating to charity land
- agreements including service level, clawback, planning gain and property management agreements, and the grant of rights of way and other easements
- the protection and use of open or community space
- disputes including dilapidations and adverse possession claims
