Eligibility for Lease or Management
Community Organisation Eligibility
To become eligible for any form of asset transfer a group needs to be considered to be a "community transfer body". Distinction is made between which type of body can request an asset transfer on the basis of :
- ownership; and
- lease or eg management.
For lease, management and other rights, the group has to be:
- Community-Controlled Body under section 19 of the act which means a body (whether corporate or unincorporated) which has a written constitution that includes the following—
(a) a definition of the community to which the body relates;
(b) provision that the majority of the members of the body consists of members of that community;
(c) provision that the members of the body, who consist of members of that community, have control of the body;
(d) provision that membership of the body is open to any member of that community;
(e) a statement of the body's aims and purposes, including the promotion of a benefit for that community; and
(f) provision that any surplus funds or assets of the body are to be applied for the benefit of that community.
