Ask a Lawyer and Get Answers to Your Legal Questions
Hello and thank you for contacting us. This is Dwayne B. and I’m an expert here and looking forward to assisting you today. If at any point any of my answers aren’t clear please don’t hesitate to ask for clarification.
Yes, you would definitely want to contact the architect and have him inspect the work to be sure that it meets the plans.
Unfortunately, it is extremely hard to sue and get full satisfaction from a builder in Texas.
Do you have a set of the plans from your architect?
You may want to consider going and talking to a local lawyer who does Civil Litigation. You can ask the architect to look it over and then if there is a discrepancy you can discuss your alternatives with the attorney and the architect. You have several choices but often if you get a lawyer involved early you can head off anything too difficult.
The lawyer can tell the architect what he will need addressed in the report in case a lawsuit is eventually necessary.
Any other questions I can assist with?
It usually would be on the blueprints. There is no law that requires them to give you the architects name but I would think they wouldn't object to doing so.
That is the smart way to approach it.
Once you issue a Positive Rating this question will change formats and no longer time out so if you think of a follow up later you can come back to it and ask.
If you don't have anything else I'll exit now to assist others.
Best wishes to you on this and please don't forget to leave a Positive Rating (of course I’d suggest Excellent!) so I get credit for my work.
