This agreement is for use between a home owner/occupier and a consultant (e.g. architect, engineer or surveyor) who is to provide services. It covers a range of services that the consultant can provide, such as producing designs and detailed specifications for the work, applying for planning permission and building regulations approval, and inspecting the building work while it is being done.
