CGI today announced the renewal of a contract with MAPFRE Insurance for multi-shore application management services. The agreement continues a partnership of more than 40 years between CGI and MAPFRE. A construction use agreement is only part of the equation. Another important factor in limiting adhesion is keeping your facilities in good working order. If someone falls down the stairs because your handrail is loose, the guilt will probably fall directly on the church. In order to limit the liability your church assumes, all groups that borrow or lease your facilities must sign an Facilities Use Agreement. Ideally, an agreement would include a language obliging the group: for groups that already use the building, you state that you need construction use agreements to better define which organization would be responsible in case of injuries or accidents. Then ask them to conclude your new agreement. Most groups should have no problem taking responsibility for losses resulting from their activities. In fact, they may have taken responsibility from the beginning. Once you have developed a contract to use the construction, corrected known defects and decided how to secure the property of the church, while others use the building, it is time to warmly welcome the groups you wish to host. Make sure that any agreement you use is verified and approved by a local lawyer, as laws vary by country. If you do not get a building permit contract and an aggrieved person sues the church, your legal status will not be as strong.
Such complaints are costly, tedious and emotionally empty. You can damage the reputation of your department, even if you have nothing to do with the event in question. They can also be preventable. Ministry items could be damaged or stolen while the building is open to other group events. If you have not taken steps to secure valuables, your department can bear the cost of exchanging missing items. So how can you protect your service while lending your building to the community?
