What are F1 class properties?

Class F1 incorporates the former non-residential institutions use class including educational and faith uses. This sector also including buildings which are open to the wider public including museums and art galleries.

The introduction of class F1 is specifically targeted to the retention of uses for buildings within the learning and non-residential institutions. These will include the following:

  • Education
  • Faith
  • Art Gallery
  • Museum
  • Public Library
  • Exhibition Hall
  • Law Court

The above are usually buildings open to the wider public and therefore all fall within the F1 use.

No, we only display a selection of properties on our website. We recommend signing up to our mailing list for exclusive access to over 80% more properties within the E, F1 and F2 use classes (formerly D1 & D2).

Each property listing is different, some we are already retained on by the vendor in which case you will not have to pay us. Those that we are not retained on, are clearly marked.

Please register your interest in the property first, we will then send you a brochure and the address if requested. 

We will ask you for details of how you intend to fund the transaction, proof of a mortgage offer (if applicable) and proof of cash available in a UK bank account. We will also require your charity number if applicable.
