Our experienced property team provides advice and support to community organisations, whether landlords or tenants, on all aspects of entering into or exiting leases.

If your community organisation is a landlord or a tenant, we can work with you to advise and support you on all aspects on entering into and exiting leases. It is imperative to ensure that leases you are entering into are consistent with any funding covenants, service-level agreements and in compliance with applicable regulations, such as the Charities Act 2011.

Our property-law team uses0 their extensive experience and sector knowledge to help community organisations 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 a community organisation find itself facing a dispute in relation to leases and transactions our team can work in partnership to assess whether there is a case for dispute and can advise and support you through the dispute-resolution process.

We act for many different organisations, from small community organisation and churches to social enterprises and large co-ops and can adjust our service to meet the needs and aspirations of your organisation.

Each member of our property team is committed to working with various sectors and regularly write and speak on developments in law and governance.
