Lease and Other Property Documents (Charities)

Changes to the way a charity can deal with property were made by the Charities Act 2022. The changes (some of which came into effect on 14 June 2023 and some on 7 March 2024) affected the lease templates and the Guidance Note about property transactions in this subfolder. Those documents have been amended as necessary to take account of the changes. For a summary of all changes to charity law made by the 2022 Act, including the law relating to dealing with charity land, please see our information pages on the Charities Act 2022.

This subfolder of Lease and Other Property Documents (Charities) contains a selection of lease agreements. There are templates for use by a landlord making an office available for use by a charity, and for a charity to sublet a surplus part of its leased office premises to another person or organisation. Where necessary, each document includes wording required to comply with the Charities Acts.  

There are also a number of guidance notes as follows:

  • There is a guidance note outlining the types of arrangement - lease, licence or tenancy at will - that may or should be used for occupation of premises.
  • There is a guidance note on excluding security of tenure and forms for use in that connection.  
  • There is also a guidance note about certain legal formalities which must be followed where property is acquired by or leased to a charity, or disposed of or leased by, a charity.

These documents have been professionally drafted for use by landlords granting leases in respect of office premises.

The documents are constructed in Word format and can be customised to meet your requirements. Please click on the links below to view details.
