What’s your role? Although I do deal with some general commercial property, the majority of my work tends to be for the charitable, education sectors and also agricultural land. Such as;
- assisting with development projects either to adapt premises to suit their changing needs, as investments or to allow development of part of their land to raise funds for work on the remainder of the land to benefit the charity.
- negotiating leases to allow other people to use their facilities either full time or part time to ensure all space is used
- dealing with permanently endowed property;
- negotiating with the Charity Commission to allow alternative use of property;
- dealing with legal charges over property as part of grant schemes or to secure funding.

Your experience? I’ve been working with the charitable sector for the past six years and offer training for trustees, charity workers and management boards.
I’ve helped farmers and land owners diversify their farms to assist with income streams including sales of land, conversion of unused buildings, agri-environmental schemes and schemes including renewable energy.
I also advise wildlife and agricultural charities on agricultural law including farm business tenancies, grazing agreements and buying and selling farmland.
I also work with various commercial and residential developers advising on site acquisition, planning issues, pre-let agreements and onward sale.
