Architect Negligence

Been led up your own garden path?
Then it’s time for a new plan

Whether you are having an extension built, building your own home from scratch or undertaking any other form of construction project, the chances are that you’ll need the professional expertise of an architect.

The architect is usually retained to design and prepare plans, obtain planning permission, obtain tenders for the building work and then supervise and administer the works.

However, the problem is that sometimes the professional architects don’t quite come up to scratch and let their clients down. With the most common mistakes being:

  • Failing to obtain necessary planning consents
  • Failing to prepare proper drawings or designs
  • Failing to give proper costings, resulting in higher work costs than anticipated
  • Specifying the use of unsuitable materials which cause problems with the integrity of the property
  • Failing to properly inspect and supervise the works
  • Recommending an incompetent builder

The problem with mistakes by your architect is that the consequences can be devastating. Not only will they cost you a great deal of money, but they can also result in any building work having to be rectified or rebuilt completely.

Even if your builder appears to be at fault, it may be possible to bring a claim against an architect. This can be a useful option when the builder may have financial difficulties as the architect will usually have professional insurance to cover claims made against it.
