Sale of Inverlussa Church
The Moderator noted that he had received correspondence from the General Trustees Law department concerning the valuation of Inverlussa Church.
The Session Clerk had followed this up by phone for clarification, and had received an e-mail from the lawyer dealing with this matter setting out 3 courses of action open to North Knapdale Church, as the sellers, in relation to the potential requirement for any buyer to negotiate with local landowners over private water, drainage and sewage services.
Following discussion the meeting unanimously agreed that the Church of Scotland Law department be notified that North Knapdale Kirk session ask that Course of action number 1 be progressed as this would reduce delay in marketing the building and would put the responsibility for any negotiations with local landowners for water and drainage access in the hands of the buyer rather than the Church of Scotland.
