Thinking of extending your property or developing a project? Beware imitations!


In the UK, the title "Architect" is protected. You cannot claim to be an "Architect" if you have not gained an RIBA accredited professional qualification.


An "Architect" must be registered with the ARB (Architect's Registration Board (Governing Body)). Engaging with someone other than an Architect (Draughtsman, Architectural designer, Plan & Drawing services, Planning & Building Warrant Drawings Services etc.) may put your project and investment at risk.


They may not carry the appropriate PII and will not provide the same professional service as an Architect. To check whether your agent is registered with the ARB please check

Misuse of this title can lead to prosecution and a penalty / fine of up to £2500.
