The General Assembly direct that all Deacons’ Courts and local Finance Committees note the advice of the General Trustees regarding the organisation of building work. The advice is as follows:
- All professional services should be the subject of a written contract paid for at prescribed rates and the documentation should be carefully preserved.
- Any revision or amendment of plans and contracts should be similarly recorded and preserved.
- All matters should be dealt with on a strictly legal basis.
- No work, especially of a major nature, should be undertaken without professional advice.
