Support: Buildings and property
Church buildings are vital to the work of the Church in London.
The Property Department is here to help with the upkeep and development of church buildings and residential housing.
Buildings owned by the church are vital to the work of the Church in London. Like their congregations they come in all shapes and sizes and each has its own special characteristics and challenges. They are places where people gather to worship and they are centres for local communities.
The Diocese has endeavoured to provide ‘Model Lease’ documents for use with church halls (ie. premises which are not consecrated). For property (typically halls) where ownership is held for parishes by LDF as Diocesan Authority, Model Lease documents provide both Guidance Notes and standardised template documents which can save parishes both time and money.
Parishes wishing to
- grant a lease to a tenant
- for a term under 7 years
- for a rent below £30,000 per annum
are encouraged to make use use of a Diocese approved Model Lease by clicking the link below:
- Guidance Notes (for use with the Model Lease)
- Model Lease – to request a copy of the Model Lease itself, email firstname.lastname@example.org
