Architect won’t supply plans with dimensions

Postby Crsm » Thu May 07, 2020 3:05 pm

We had an architect for an extension and loft conversion. He produced plans and went through the planning application etc. The builders he wanted to use were too expensive and he wouldn’t work with one that we found so we terminated our association. We have the plans but he refuses to provide ones with measurements. Is he within his rights to withhold them, especially as we paid a lot of money?

Hi crsm
Presumably you are referring to planning application plans, as opposed to building regulations plans. If this is the case there should be a scale on the drawings which will allow to to determine dimensions. There is no requirement to dimension PA plans.

Thanks for the reply.
Yes there is a scale on the plans (though on at least one there is an error) but it would have been much easier for my builder if the measurements were included. Having paid the architect the best part of 5k his attitude is very disappointing.
