2 situations: 1. The owner hires architect A. The project is completed, owner pays promptly, etc. Years later the owner hires new architect B to do additions. According to B101, 7.3 the owner can use the instruments of service for the purposes of constructing, using, maintaining, altering and adding to the project. In 7.3.1 the owners such use in this instance will hold Architect A harmless. Can Architect B use architect A’s instruments of services to perform the addition? Or does other action also need to be taken to abide by NCARBs rules and regulations? 2. Agreement between architect A and owner is terminated. Everyone is payed for their services. Owner pays for continued use of Architect A’s Instruments of Service. They hire Architect B to finish the project. Can Architect B use these documents immediately? If not, What action then must be carried out? I feel like I haven’t gotten a clear concise answer to these questions. Thanks for the help, Dylan
