SHW’s work with 21 local authorities, charities and not-for-profit sector

Although much of our client base is in the private sector, SHW also work with many county and local councils in the South East as well as a broad range of third sector organisations. A recent audit of services carried out for local government, the public sector and charities has confirmed the breadth and depth of our involvement with the not-for-profit sector.



This includes:

  • Acquisition – such as Ashdown House for Crawley Borough Council (34,000+ A Grade offices)
  • Arbitration – supporting dispute resolution by providing expert witness reports
  • Asset management advisory for the Whitgift Foundation, a large Croydon-based educational charity
  • Building Consultancy maintaining buildings for councils and charities across the region
  • Business Rates ­– providing savings for charities such as Cats Protection
  • Compulsory purchase negotiations for several councils and charities across the region and beyond
  • Disposals for Housing Associations and similar bodies
  • Development sales to release revenue from unwanted assets
  • Estates audits
  • Estate valuation ­– the largest recent one being the for the University of Brighton
  • Lease advisory for organisations such as The Peabody Trust
  • Advising on and achieving Planning consents for a broad range of bodies, the most recent being The Diocese of Southwark
  • Property Management e.g. Park Mall shopping centre for Ashford Borough Council
  • Strategic advice on large-scale rejuvenation and regeneration projects

 

The firm can also assist with technical charity-specific valuations reflecting the requirements of the Charities Act relating to property disposals and lettings.

SHW Managing Partner Martin Clark said: “Now more than ever before organisations in these sectors need professional advice from seasoned experts in order to maximise value and minimise cost in this complicated arena. SHW have a long and successful track record of making property work for these entities which do so much great service for society.”
