A transfer order setting out the proposed terms for the transfers of estate from primary care trusts to aspirant community foundation trusts and foundation trusts has now been circulated by the DH.

Proposed transferees will qualify for the transfer where they are the majority occupier of the property. The order contains various covenants and obligations on the part of the transferees, as well as terms for a call option and overage provisions in favour of the DH to which all of the properties will be subject. The proposed transfer order also sheds light on some of the other obligations of the transferees that will attach to properties transferred in this way.
