Architect and Engineer Law
The HOAI (Honorarordnung for Architekten und Ingeniure; Fee structure for architects and engineers) regulates the remuneration for architects and engineers only partially. The fees for special services and consultancy services can be freely agreed. The biggest problem is, however, that the HOAI - which is supposed to be only price regulations - regulates architects / engineers services extremely fragmented.
From the customers’ point of view, architect contracts should be focused on detailed regulations on the performance requirements, however, from the architects and engineers point of view, it is particularly important to determine which technical planning services are to be commissioned by the client as a prerequisite for their own services. Besides the remuneration and service issues, differentiated appointments are necessary in architect / engineer contracts.
WITT | Wirtschaftsprüfer, Rechtsanwälte und Steuerberater advises our clients on all contractual matters and offers individual solutions for different construction projects and contract groups. One of the focuses of our activities is the defense against claims for damages due to planning and construction monitoring errors.
