At a time when more and more charities are facing a downturn in income, many are seeking to merge with another charity to maximise resources and effectiveness.

Part of such merger involves a consideration of the status and usefulness of any freehold or leasehold property held by one or both entities.

This short webinar will explore the property issues that could frustrate a merger and will offer guidance on how they can be overcome.

Ideal for professional advisers, charity managers and board members, this webinar will also consider the issue of consent and the unknowns that can arise post-merger.

What You Will Learn

This webinar will cover the following:

  • How to understand the trusts upon which a property might be held
  • Whose consents are necessary and how to obtain them?
  • The dangers lurking behind a lease
  • Planning restrictions and personal consents
  • How to overcome missing registered proprietors
  • Due diligence and what needs to be specifically asked
  • The statutory provisions that can help cure defects

This pre-recorded webinar will be streamed at 12:30pm on Friday 12th July 2024 and will remain available to view by delegates who have registered by then for 90 days.
