The first charity did not dispose of the land.
For the second charity a sale is proper by either of two ways.
It gets proper advice and acts upon it. This procedure is set out in the Charities Acts.
And how is a client supposed to know if their solicitor's advice is proper? Are you suggesting that we should always be reading and understanding the relevant law ourselves?!
If so WTF is the point of engaging a solicitor?
And do the Charities Acts really allow a charity to act in opposition to their own objects?
ETA:Before you start, you and the other trustees must be sure that:
you have permission to sell or lease the property – either in your governing document or in the law
there is nothing in your governing document that prevents you selling or leasing the property
your charity actually owns the title to the property
the sale or lease is in the charity’s best interests
if the property is designated for a particular purpose, such as a recreation ground, that the sale or lease doesn’t go against this
I' not sure on the first two, but I think they failed on the others.
Take me to your lizard...
