CPD Video: Why do architects need a form of appointment?

The RIBA and the ARB codes of conduct require architects to record the terms of their appointment before working with a client. Getting this key document right is critical

Written agreements between architects and clients are essential. This RIBA approved CPD video features a discussion chaired by Jane Duncan of Jane Duncan Architects & Interiors and past president of the RIBA.

A panel of specialists, all from RIBA committees, consider the importance of a form of appointment when working on a project of any size.

The CPD video helps answer the following questions:

  • Why do architects need forms of appointment?
  • What should a form of appointment contain?
  • How do you ensure a fair and balanced contract?
  • What are an architect’s main responsibilities in a form of appointment?
  • How do you set out fees?
  • If something goes wrong how do you minimise the impact?
