I wish them luck with the planners.
Comment on: The ARB can't be scrapped soon enough
Plumbers don't need to claim to be architects as they are entitled to call themselves (heating) engineers, due to a lack of protection of title in the engineering professions.
My bank account showed that I had a direct debit set up but nothing was collected by ARB. I have double checked and no hard copy or email warnings were sent to me, contrary to what ARB say. I saw the headlines about strike offs and was confident that my direct debit payment would happen. I have just had a letter from ARB to say that I have been struck off (funny how that one came through ok.) Rechecked my bank account and the D D still in place. Tried checking my details on the ARB website but they have been taken down, presumably because of non payment. So its my word against theirs. Sofie Pelsmakers' comments here and my own experience make me very suspicious.
Ahem. Apologies for the apostrophe.
Architect's complain if their bills aren't paid on time, so they should practise what they preach.
