We have a strategic capability in advising charities.
Our charity clients include schools, religious institutions, as well as other charitable organisations.
We provide our charity clients with disposal / acquisition agency services, valuation advice (including rent reviews) and building surveying / party wall advice.
We understand the responsibilities and requirements of ensuring compliance with the Charities Act 2011 and the Charities (Qualified Surveyors' Reports) Regulations 1992.
We are aware of the different decision making structures of charitable organisations and are used to providing the required support and working well within these contexts.
Dealing with property owned by charities can involve complex situations including development potential, restrictive covenants and multiple ownerships. We are experienced in dealing with challenging valuation matters and in liaising with solicitors in relation to intricate legal issues.
Where the requirement is to extract value from the client's property holdings, we see beyond how the property first appears and identify possibilities which can add significant net value.
