Who to contact about property matters

Posted in Property services

Under the new Presbytery structure, oversight of property matters remains with Synod of SA Property Services team. Each Presbytery will be represented by nominated delegates at Synod Property Committee meetings.

Congregations continue to manage:

  • day to day property management
  • regular maintenance
  • licence agreements with hirers

Liaison with Property Services staff should occur where property proposals interact with legislative requirements and the legal obligations of The Uniting Church in Australia Property Trust (S.A.).

These matters may include:

  • Changes to land such as boundary realignments, amalgamations and subdivisions
  • Property upgrades and maintenance, where one of the following applies:
    • over $10,000 in value,
    • effect the structure
    • requires Development Approval
  • Property development projects
  • Leasing of residential or commercial property
  • Selling or purchasing property
  • Entering into local agreements which may encumber property
  • Identification of significant risks beyond the scope of regular management or maintenance
