Our specialist social-business solicitors can support values-driven organisations through every stage of the community -asset transfer process.
Without community-asset transfers, vital services and community areas would be lost. A community-asset transfer is the process transferring the ownership and/or management of assets such as parks, town halls, community centres, sport facilities, affordable housing and libraries from public sector bodies to local charities or community groups.
Community groups take on the management and/or ownership from public-sector bodies to keep services open, enable refurbishment and improve local accountability. Ownership or management can be taken on as a freehold, long lease, shorter lease or a licence to occupy basis. There can also be linked service agreements, grant or funding conditions and the transfer of staff to contend with.
