Community buyouts through negotiation: Session 2 – From offer to ownership

This webinar series, facilitated by Community Land Scotland, will provide insight into the legal side of a negotiated transfer of land/assets 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 from a private landowner, both urban and rural, but is open to all with an interest in the subject and would be of some relevance to communities seeking asset transfer from a public body. The following speakers will contribute to the series:

  • Rebekah Dundas and David Knight, Scottish Land Fund
  • Calum MacLeod, Harper Macleod LLP
  • Ailsa Raeburn, Chair of Community Land Scotland and the Isle of Eigg Heritage Trust
  • Linsay Chalmers, Vice-Chair of South Cowal Community Enterprises This event consists of three sessions.
