A detailed list of what is required to be signed under seal is listed in the Document Execution Policy – available from the policy library.

A NEULA is typically used for one-off hires or hires of a church premises that are not permanent. These hires can include birthday parties and other family functions, to dance classes, AA meetings, and other general business meetings. These hirers can run in conjunction with other hires, hence the nature of them being non-exclusive.

If the premises is going to be solely used by one party (for example a business hiring an office from 9-5 in a business week) then this would be considered a lease.

Congregations and presbyteries have two options when it comes to organising leases for your premises. They can either be leased and managed by the congregation or presbytery themselves, or you can engage an agent to manage the property.
