Clergy housing terms of service

  • If you are a freeholder, your rights and responsibilities in connection with your housing are set out in the Repair of Benefice Buildings Measure 1972 and other legislation, which can be obtained at www.commontenure.org or from your diocesan office.
  • If you serve under Common Tenure, the Ecclesiastical Offices (Terms of Service) Regulations 2009 apply. Those clergy who are entitled to be provided with accommodation are notified of the house they are required to occupy in their Statement of Particulars.
  • For an incumbent under Common Tenure, your rights and responsibilities in connection with your housing are set out in the Repair of Benefice Buildings Measure 1972 and other legislation, which can be obtained at www.commontenure.org or from your diocesan office.
  • For others under Common Tenure, where your relevant housing provider is the Diocesan Parsonages Board or the London Diocesan Fund, the duties of your designated housing provider are set out at Regulation 12 and your duties in respect of your accommodation are set out at Regulation 14.
  • For those on contracts where accommodation is provided by the Diocese for the better performance of your duties, the Diocese will operate similar provisions to those set out in Regulations 12 & 14.

Rights of entry to your property on the part of Diocesan staff and appointed officials to carry out our obligations are set out in Regulation 13.
