Leading UK property advice charity The Ethical Property Foundation is delighted to offer this property workshop in partnership with Voscur as part of the National Programme for Property Education:

The half day workshop is followed by a free sandwich lunch and a drop in property advice clinic.

Charities and community groups are increasingly choosing to take on asset transfers from local authorities as a means of acquiring property. However, without proper management, any property is at risk of becoming a liability, with unforeseen costs and unexpected problems putting a strain on organisations which are often already overworked.

This training is designed to give a jargon free, accessible introduction and overview of how to make asset transfers a success:

  • How taking on an asset can benefit your organisation
  • How to engage with local authorities
  • Business planning to assess the viability and sustainability of taking on community buildings
  • Legal structures and governance issues to consider when considering taking on community buildings
  • Identifying ‘hidden’ hazards or responsibilities: what are you ACTUALLY taking on
  • Common mistakes and how to deal with them
  • Lessons from others

The morning workshop is followed by a free light lunch and a drop in property advice clinic. Take the opportunity to book your confidential 1:1 time with property professionals at the drop - in advice clinic.
