Shared Assets

If you're looking to set up a social enterprise or community-led enterprise, Shared Assets have a wealth of information and good tips around  leases and agreements that facilitate mutually beneficial land use for social enterprises and landowners. 

 

This resource is especially useful for social enterprises who work with land, since land ownership can also incur high liabilities. For landowners, a good agreement can help make their relationship with the enterprise stable, sustainable and trouble free.
