Charities and community groups are increasingly choosing to take on asset transfers from local authorities as a means of acquiring property. However, without proper management, any property is at risk of becoming a liability, with unforeseen costs and unexpected problems putting strain on organisations that are often already overworked.

This training is designed to give a jargon-free, accessible introduction and overview of how to make asset transfers a success. It will look to uncover some of the issues involved and give real-life examples of successes and failures to enable those attending to better understand the opportunities open to them.

The ACS team of Dominic Curran, Edwina Turner , Alex Tindall , and Inderpal Singh will be joined by Ian Parker of the Ethical Property Foundation to give guidance to the groups attending.
