Hello my name is ***** ***** I will help you with this.
Who instructed the architect?
Would the architect ever been paid by anyone?
But you instructed him originally and it was just a re-calculation, is that right?
Ok - then he is liable to you. This is part of the original contract. It is not to do with the builder.
The architect is liable and it would be against him for the new RSJ.
If you have to issue proceedings, you can do it against both. That way you are covered and it does not cost you any more to sue 2 people.
Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?
