Charities & Social Enterprise

Carolyn McKay

Associate Solicitor

18 years qualified

For a number of years now, Carolyn has advised a variety of charitable bodies on all aspects of real estate law, including the disposal and acquisition of property and leasehold premises. This means, of course, she is very familiar with the statutory restrictions on the disposal or mortgage of charity land and is therefore able to guide trustees safely and efficiently through these requirements.

Due to the inter-relation between the real estate aspects of any charity-based transaction and the need to abide by regulatory or constitutional restrictions, Carolyn’s work with charities inevitably involves collaborating with colleagues in other teams. And thanks to her involvement in a number of more complex development/financing transactions involving charitable bodies, Carolyn has developed an in-depth awareness of the issues involved in such transactions.

As for her other enjoyments in life, these are varied indeed. In fact they range from raising two young children, to performing headstands in yoga and giving Indian Head Massages, for which she has a diploma.
