Our experienced property team provides advice and support to community organisations, social enterprises, co-operatives or commercial businesses, whether landlords or tenants, on all aspects of entering into or exiting leases.

We work in partnership with you, whether your organisation is a landlord or a tenant, to advise and support you to ensure that leases you enter into are consistent with any funding covenants, service-level agreements and comply with applicable regulations such as the Charities Act 2011. 

Our charity-law team has extensive experience and sector knowledge in assisting charities with drafting, negotiating, renewing and terminating lease contracts. We also regularly assist more commercial organisations with the buying and selling of property and charging land.

Should disputes arise in relation to leases and transactions our team can work in partnership with your organisation to assess whether there is a case for dispute and can advise and support you through the dispute-resolution process.

We act for charities from small community organisations and churches to large national and international charities, for social businesses and large co-operativess and are adept at adjusting the service we provide to fit the needs and aspirations of different organisations. Members of our team are committed to working with the various sectors and regularly write and speak on developments in law and governance.
