Charity Real Estate and Property Lawyers, sparks of light

Charity Property

Charity Real Estate and Property Solicitors

For charities, real estate is often a key asset. You may lease the premises from which you operate;  or own an investment property which generates income to support your operations and the prospect of longer term capital gain; or own land earmarked for development which may produce a shorter term capital gain; or you may be looking to enter into a major capital project involving the construction of new facilities.

Experienced Property Solicitors

Irrespective of the work that is required, you need legal advisers who will take the time to understand your objectives and will provide you with expert, pragmatic and jargon-free advice. In our experience, this is what drives our clients' approach to risk and reward and informs our approach to your work. 

The wide range of work we do for our charity clients in relation to their real estate reflects the wide range of strategic objectives that they have. Understanding charity law and regulation as it applies to real estate is obviously essential, but we use both our sector knowledge and our experience in the commercial sector to ensure that our clients receive the best advice.

How We Can Help Charities

Our experienced property solicitors provide our charity clients with the full range of legal services in relation to their real estate. Our work focuses on buying and selling property, property development, property litigation, using property as security, construction, property investment and portfolio management, property finance, relocation, planning and the environment.

Understanding and advising on issues which are key to some charities (such as the ability to dispose of permanent endowment land or the scope for entering into a development joint venture with a commercial partner) is also a core part of our work.

A well managed real estate portfolio should free up time to concentrate on your core activities.  We work with our clients on the whole life-cycle of property ownership from acquiring leases and freehold property, to managing leases and property interests, through to disposing of property and terminating leases.

Our team is nationally recognised for its work with charities. We work with other specialists within our firm in order to ensure that our clients receive a service which reflects their objectives as well as the specific requirements of charity law and regulation.  We also maintain strong links with many other professionals in the real estate sector, particularly those who are focused on working with charities.

For specialist advice from experienced property solicitors, please contact Con Alexander on 0117 314 5214.

The quality of service is strong, but always balanced with a practical viewpoint. Advice is therefore not excessively legalistic and can be implemented more easily than would be possible with a more technical approach.
