From charity shop to investment portfolio, most charities will have material interests in property.

For many, property will be the single largest asset within their endowment. Very often, interests in property, whether for use, occupation or investment, will be governed by legal and practical considerations at something of a remove from property market norms – informed as they will be by a charity’s mission and objects and by the statutory duties of its trustees.

Dealing effectively, efficiently and economically with those interests requires property and charity considerations to be brought together in a collaborative and cohesive way and in concert with a charity’s executive and its other professional advisers.
