Before a Parish Building Surveyor can provide support to your church, a Service Level Agreement needs to be signed on behalf of the PCC by the incumbent or churchwarden. This document sets out the service that the Parish Building Surveyors will offer and the responsibilities that rest with the PCC. A copy of this Service Level Agreement can be found below:
