Property is a key asset for many charities and not for profit organisations; as a host for delivery of front line services, as head office or administrative base, as a source of revenue, and for some charities the properties may be the focus of their charitable objectives.
Charities and voluntary sector organisations often need support and advice on property matters in order for them to be able to manage their property assets more effectively. In addition section 119 of the Charities Act 2011 places a requirement on charities when disposing of an interest in property to seek professional advice from a qualified surveyor before entering into an agreement for sale.
We can help you with:
- Providing s.119 Charities Act compliant valuation reports to support property disposals
- Acquisitions and disposals of operational and non-operational property by freehold sale or lease
- Strategic portfolio reviews, property management and accounting
- Professional advice including freehold and leasehold valuations, landlord and tenant issues, rent reviews, rating assessment and appeals, expert witness and arbitration
