Join Community Land Scotland and guest speakers who will share some insights and good practice in relation to conducting negotiated sales.

This webinar series, facilitated by Community Land Scotland, will provide insight into the legal side of a negotiated transfer and prepare groups for what to expect from the acquisition process (including pitfalls to avoid). This 3-part online event will be of particular interest to aspiring community landowners, community groups at the early stages of considering a community buyout, both urban and rural but is open to all with an interest in the subject.
