Community buyouts through negotiation: Your journey, avoiding the bumps in the road
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. Attendees can tune into any or all of the sessions listed below:

Session 1: From idea to offer, 10-11am
This session will explore issues around identifying and maintaining a good relationship with a landowner, valuations, legal advice that may be required.

Session 2: From offer to ownership 12-1pm
This session will focus on the conveyancing process and what to expect from this stage of the ownership journey.

Session 3: Day One of being a community landowner, 2-3pm
In this session we will explore the nuts and bolts of what happens immediately after a community buyout is completed when, most argue, the real work begins.
