Choosing the correct legal structure is important and our experienced Charity Law Solicitors are able to advise on whether the organisation should be:
1. A company limited by guarantee which charitable status (a charitable company)
2. A charitable trust
3. A charitable incorporated organisation (permitted under the 2006 Charity’s Act)
4. An unincorporated association
5. A voluntary organisation
Whichever structure is applicable, we attend to the complete registration process. Buying or leasing a property is likely to be one of the biggest transactions a charity will undertake and good knowledgeable advice from an experienced Charity Law Solicitor is essential.
Our Charity Law Team can assist in the whole process including Town & Country Planning issues, the raising of finance, joint ventures, as well as the actual conveyancing itself.
We have a dedicated team of Charity Law solicitors who work closely with their retained experts in the surveying, planning, architectural, accounting and banking professions to ensure a one stop service with our charity clients.
