Charity Property Help offers free advice

NCVO, Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors and CFDG join forces to launch new service

Voluntary organisations are to receive free advice on property-related issues.

The Charity Property Help service has been launched by the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors in partnership with the NCVO and the Charity Finance Directors' Group.

The service provides registered charities and voluntary organisations with a free one-hour consultation from a RICS member. Charities do not have to be a member of RICS or the NCVO to access the service.

Among the topics organisations can seek help on are: property maintenance; environmental issues; lease, renewals and tenancies; and planning issues.

RICS member Geoffrey Barber's Return Foundation has funded the project, which will be reviewed after a year. "This will enable the property industry to make a valuable contribution to society, with surveyors offering at least one hour's free advice, and property owners being able to gain access to the charity world should they wish to provide subsidised accommodation," he said.

"We envisage that this facility will save charities and voluntary organisations millions of pounds".
