An asset transfer request can be submitted for any land/building at any time, even if there is already a request in place from another group. You do not have to wait until an earlier request has been completed before submitting yours. If there is more than one group interested in the same land/building you should try to work together to agree a single request, although we know that this isn't always practical.
