Error:  You cannot delete this record:  Object doesn't support this property or method when deleting organisation relationship address attributes
This is resolved in 7.96 patch 13, released in September - October 2018 and applied to databases in Blackbaud Hosting Services. If your database is installed locally, download and install the latest version and patch, if applicable. 

In previous versions:
Manually delete the attribute from the organisation relationship address records
Update the attribute category on the address records using import
