Our experienced charity law solicitors provide advice and support to charitable organisations that are landlords or tenants on all aspects of entering into or exiting leases, as well as property acquisitions and property disposals.
We work in partnership with charitable organisations that are landlords or tenants to advise and support them to ensure that leases they enter into are consistent with funding, service level agreements and in compliance 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 charitable organisations with the buying and selling of property and charging land.
Should disputes arise in relation to leases and transactions our team of specialist solicitors can work in partnership with charity organisations to assess whether there is a case for dispute and can advise and support the organisation through the dispute resolution process.
We act for several hundred charities from small community organisations and churches to large national and international charities and are adept at adjusting the service we provide to fit the needs and aspirations of different organisations. Our team is committed to working with the charity sector and regularly write and speak on developments in charity law and governance.
