The trusteeship process

A simple guide to how it works

Bespoke property advice for independent churches

As church property trustees you face many different challenges. The law is constantly changing, so it is easy to lose track of the latest property legislation and health and safety issues. We are church property experts, so you do not have to be. Let us guide you through the options available, helping you find the right solution for you and your church. 

How it works:

Step 1

Speak to us

We always begin with an informal chat,  completely free of charge and without any obligation. For many churches, the first call is enough for them to carry on their journey. But if you would like to speak with us again, we would be happy to talk in more detail.

Step 2

Review your property Trust Deed

We suggest carrying out a review of your property Trust Deed to enable us to fully understand the details relating to your church property. From this we then work with you to identify the options for securing the future of your building.  

Step 3

Meet with us

During this initial meeting we will help you understand your trustee responsibilities within charity law and discuss how to move forward in the right way for you.

Step 4

Receive tailored advice

After your initial meeting, we will write to you, setting out your options and how we or others can help you. Once you decide what you want to do, we will work with you to achieve this.

Step 5

Get continued support

If we take on your property we provide a range of services, including regular visits so we can hear how things are going and offer support and ideas for encouraging growth. Our property managers also advise on ways to keep your property in good condition, compliant with legislation and suitable for modern church use.

Got any questions? We are happy to help

If you would like an informal chat to discuss your needs or would like us to review your property Trust Deed, please get in touch. We would be happy to talk through your situation.
