The Architects Code of Professional Conduct states that the professional must set out in writing the terms of the appointment which must include, inter alia, the scope of the work and the services to be provided then submit the plans to the local authority for approval.

If these requirements had not been met and the contract proves that obtaining local authority approval was never part of the scope of work to be carried out, all is good and well. However, if this point is vague or worse, if no contract had been signed, then the reliance on a verbal contract comes into play. All too often at this point, the parties’ recollection of what had been agreed on tends to differ in interpretation.
