Legal advice for independent schools dealing with school property

Many Independent Schools have extensive property portfolios, which bring challenges as well as opportunities!  

Schools which are charities have various aspects of charity law to contend with and we have extensive experience in advising on the requirements of the Charities Act 2011 in relation to sales of land and borrowing to fund capital projects, as well as how permanent endowment property can be effectively managed. We also regularly advise on issues relating to staff accommodation as well as lettings to third parties to provide community benefit and/or additional income. 

We have offices in London, Richmond, Southampton, Woking, Lymington and Guildford and can offer specialist advice and support on a local and national level. Please do not hesitate to contact any member of the team to discuss how we can help you.
