Any congregational property allocated to either Church shall be subject to any bonds, burdens, or debts thereon or in respect thereof, and the Commissioners may charge upon the particular congregational property concerned any moneys expended since thirty-first October, nineteen hundred, on improvements of that property or in paying off debt incurred in respect of that property.
