When a charity or not for profit organisation buys, sells or leases a property there are additional considerations and statutory requirements that do not apply to private individuals or companies.
We work with a number of charities, and we use this experience to guide you through the necessary statutory or regulatory steps that need to be taken both before and after completion.
We can help your charity or not for profit organisation when real estate issues arise – whether you are looking to acquire or dispose of leasehold or freehold premises or develop land.
