Default would it be possible to take over development of the Hawk?

If some developer wanted to work on a hawk module would they have to start all over again or would the code be in a common code bank- so someone could take over the current mod?

No. The Hawk source code is the intellectual property of VEAO. A different developer would have to start from scratch.

To the best of my knowledge: after the Hawk disaster ED modified the 3rd party contracts to include a transfer of the source code to ED if the 3rd party goes tits up, but don't quote me on that.

It would be possible, but AFAIK VEAO didn't want ED to take it over.

Yep, VEAO refused to give up the code to ED. If the rumours are true, thats maybe a good thing. VEAO's code was supposedly a complete and utter mess.

Would be brilliant to have a proper hawk module back in dcs, I really enjoyed flying it despite the flaws it had and it was my 1st full fidelity module.

If only the Virtual red arrows guys would let us purchase their mod!
