Man guilty of misusing term 'architect'

  • Comment
City of Westminster magistrates have found a London man guilty of misusing the title ‘architect’.

Alfred Jaramillo of Robsart Mansions, Kenton Street, London WC1, was found guilty of breaching the Architects Act after a former client of his reported him for advertising his services as an architect, despite his never having been registered with ARB.

The magistrates described Jaramillo’s offence as ‘very serious’ and fined him £1,000. He was also ordered to pay costs of £1,200.

An ARB spokesperson said: ‘This was a clear breach of Section 20 of the Architects Act, and Mr Jaramillo misled members of the public into thinking that they were dealing with a fully trained and fully qualified architect.

‘The ARB has a duty to ensure that public confidence in architects is not damaged, and we will continue to deal firmly with anyone who puts that duty in jeopardy.’
