Within the Church of England every church building must be inspected by an architect or chartered building surveyor approved by the Diocesan Advisory Committee (DAC) every five years.
This regular system of review is designed to ensure that church buildings are kept in good repair.
The pages on the left will help you to find out about working with your professional adviser, preparing for and receiving the report.
