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 have been made by the Charities Act 2022 which received Royal Assent on 24 February 2022. The documents in this folder take into account amendments to the law with effect from 14 June 2023. Some of the Charities Act 2022 property provisions have still to be implemented and further changes will be made to any content as and when those provisions come into effect. For a summary of the changes on other topics under this Act, 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.
