Introduction to the
Ethical Property Foundation

  • The Foundation was set up in 2004 to offer charities, community groups and not-for-profits independent property advice. We have helped over 2,500 organisations to rent, buy, let or manage property.

  • The Foundation offers one-to-one help through our Property Advice Service - initial support is free of charge. For more in-depth support the Foundation offers training and consultancy services.

  • The Foundation assists organisations by helping them to avoid expensive property mistakes and to take a strategic view of property assets. We aim to build the skills of those we help so they are better able to deal with property issues.
