Property Law for Charities

For charities, real estate is often a key asset and with increasing pressure on the methods for raising funds, making the most of your property and land assets is vital.

Working with Birkett Long, you will benefit not only from our broad property expertise but also from our specialist knowledge in areas such as taxation, environmental issues, property disputes and construction.

Our property team provides charities with a highly personal service, along with in-depth charity sector knowledge and proven property expertise to help you get the most out of the assets you hold.

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. A few examples of the support Birkett Long can provide:

  • How to sell or lease charity property

  • Mortgages and loans secured against your charity’s property
  • Who should hold the title for charity land
  • Charity property relocation
  • Development; and
  • General portfolio advice.

How we can help charities

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 part of our team’s work.
