Property essentials for faith-based organsations

This roundtable session is designed to help faith-based organisations make the most of their property including:

  • Granting tenancies to beneficiaries, employees or on the open market
  • Making the most of your property assets by sharing occupation of properties
  • Future proofing your property through redevelopment
  • Charities Act requirements in property transactions including using property as security
  • Managing risk for faith-based charities

Why choose this course?

The maintenance of property assets is an important consideration for faith-based organisations. From maintaining old or heritage buildings, to operating office space, updating and making use of church hall facilities and utilising residential property for a charity's objects, property is an important consideration and ensuring this property is used to its full potential and in line with legal requirements in a safe, risk-managed way is vital for faith-based organisations.

Who should attend?

This seminar is open to all organisations and would be of particular interest to charity trustees and senior managers.
