The Leader of the Property Team is Mr Jim Chalmers, tel: 01236 720917,
e-mail email@example.com. Property matters are very important in the lives of
most congregations. The Presbytery Property Handbook is intended to be a useful tool to assist congregations in handling property matters, and is now available for access from this page. The
Team also provide assistance and advice to congregations on matters relating to their local property, but often the answer is to be found in the Property Handbook.
The Handbook and Notes on Disability Discrimination are published in Adobe pdf format. For notes on viewing and printing see the Documents tab on the menu. Other forms are offered in both Adobe pdf and MS Word format, the latter giving the opportunity to complete the forms on your own computer.
Your attention is drawn to a letter from the Secretary of the Church Art and Architecture Committee (CARTA) of the Church of Scotland reminding congregations of their responsibility to consult with CARTA when significant alterations are made to Church buildings. Download/view the letter here.
Please note that all application forms in connection with property (except for Form MMCR) must be submitted to the
Property Team Leader in the first instance, and not to the Presbytery Clerk or to the Property and Congregational Finance Convener.
Please note also that Presbytery Form MMCR is included here for convenience. It is a Finance form and is to be returned to the Finance Team Leader.
