Description

  • Why does an appointment need to be written?
  • Why does language matter?
  • What is a novation?
  • What does an overall cap on liability mean, and how can you convince a client to agree one?
  • How do you assess an extension of time?
  • When should you notify your insurer of a potential claim?

The second edition of Law in Practice: The RIBA Legal Handbook answers all of these questions and many more through clear, jargon-free professional guidance. Still addressing all the fundamental issues of contemporary English construction law, this new edition has been carefully updated to reflect recent legal developments and practical changes introduced by the RIBA Plan of Work 2013. Basic principles, high concepts and hard cases are worked through step-by-step as they arise throughout a project, with key legal mechanisms illustrated as simple line drawings.

Functioning both as a quick reference as well as an intelligent guide to complex issues, Law in Practice gives architects and Part 3 students alike the tools to work through issues of construction law for themselves, allowing them to make sound judgements, avoid disputes, and run projects on a safer basis.
