: i hired an archetect to design a home with parameters i specified, he did, he charged about $35,000, the home would cost approx. $500,000 without landscaping.
: i had the home built. now it is 7 years later and the archetect is now selling my exact house plans to other contractors. same sq. footage, same windows, same doors, same load bearing walls, same height on interior cellings, same deminsions, same interior compliments such as pillars, and fireplaces.
: can he do this????????
Dear Mr. Laub,
Without research, if you do not have a written agreement with him as to the rights in the plans, I think there is nothing you can do.
