Join this member-only webinar to learn about acquiring land from charities for your community led housing projects from experts Emma Ridge and Elizabeth Wilson of Wrigleys Solicitors.

The talk’s aim is to spread a greater understanding of why charities cannot necessarily give preferential treatment to community-led housing groups. The emphasis will be on CLTs but the information will be useful for all CLH groups and will cover:

  • An explanation of the difficulties that charities can face in disposing of property to CLH groups
  • The various legal and regulatory obligations that charities have to comply with
  • A look at the recent publicity about the Church’s decision to dispose of an old school site to private buyers rather than to a local CLT
  • Possible ways for CLH groups to make it easier for charities to transfer much-needed land to them.
