This Architectural Consultants Terms and Conditions template document sets out the standard terms and conditions of the provision of services where you, the consultant, are supplying general architectural consultancy services to a client on your terms.
The T&Cs set out the precise arrangements for the provision of services by an architectural consultant to a client taking into account the particular requirements of providing architectural consultancy including:
- client restriction on direct recruiting
- obtaining planning and building warrants
- responsibility for subcontractors and/or 3rd parties
- compliance with statutory requirements.
An optional proposal document is also included so that you can provide your client with the specifics of the consultancy services you will provide along with your standard terms and conditions. Comprehensive guidance notes on how to customise the document to suit your business are also provided.
You need to make your client aware of your terms and conditions in a way which allows the terms to be incorporated into the contract. If the terms and conditions are set out (i.e. printed) on the reverse side of the proposal you give to your client you should think about adding a reference on the front page to your terms and conditions on the reverse.
