Charitable & Religious Sectors
A specialist marketplace that requires an individual, ethical and professional approach.
Our client groups in this area include trusts, religious groups and charitable organisations as well as public sector bodies.
Through our comprehensive team of professionals we advise on a range of issues and often act as ‘estates advisors’. This includes work in the following areas:
Estate Management and Maintenance –This involves property and asset management of both operational and income producing investment properties. We combine day to day management with building surveying and project management to maintain condition and value of the portfolio.
Sales and Acquisitions -The agency team are well placed to provide market knowledge, well thought out advice on alternative uses and value enhancement through disposal. This may include re-development of a site, conversion of a former church or a higher value use within the same use class.
Valuation –Our regulated RICS registered valuers provide Charities Act Reports for a wide range of property types and needs.
For the disposal or acquisition of an interest in land or buildings a charity must obtain advice, usually in the form of a valuation, from a suitably qualified surveyor.
Our work has involved us assisting a number of religious groups such as local Methodist Church Circuits, The Congregational Federation Church, The United Reformed Church, Mosque groups and Sikh Temples as well as operational charities like Wessex Cancer, No Limits and many more.
