Property Documents for Charities

Property Documents for Charities

These Lease, Sublease, Licence, and Tenancy at Will and related documents have been professionally drafted for use where a charity is to enter into occupation of various types of office or retail premises (on a short or long term basis) or is to use land or other premises for a short period. There is also a form of sublease for use where a charity has a lease of offices and wishes to sublet any of its surplus space to another organisation or person.  

The Lease subfolder also contains a Guidance Note on Excluding Security of Tenure and a guidance note about certain legal formalities to be implemented where a freehold is acquired by or leased to a charity, or a freehold is disposed of or leased by a charity.

Changes to the way a charity can deal with property will change under the Charities Act 2022. It received Royal Assent on 24 February 2022 but its provisions relating to dealing with charity land are not yet in force. It is expected that those provisions will be implemented on a date in Spring 2023. A specific date for implementation is awaited, and when that date is known, this page will be amended to refer to it. In addition to changing the law on dealing with charity land, the Act will make various other changes to charity law - for a summary of all changes, please see our information pages on the Charities Act 2022

The documents are easy to use. The documents are constructed in Word format, and can be customised to meet your requirements. Please click on the links below to view details. Where necessary, each document includes wording required to comply with the Charities Acts.

For other template documents, forms, guidance notes and other materials for use by charities, please refer to the Charities & Non-Profit Group in our Corporate folder.

These Charity Documents are part of the Property Documents Folder. Just £35.00 + VAT will provide you with 1 year's unlimited access to download all/any documents from the Property Folder.
