Saba, an architect working for QBS Architects Inc., came to my house with, and at the behest of, a builder I was discussing a small addition to the side of my house with.
Saba agreed to do the design, structural drawings, and obtain a building permit for $4000. I paid her $2000 and she did the design drawings which were good.
Subsequently, I decided not to use the builder because he doubled his price from his original ballpark estimate.
When Saba found out I would not use this builder, she said she would not complete the rest of the contract unless I paid more money than the agreed amount. I said we had a signed contract and I would not pay more. I then received an email from Saba saying: "Sorry am not willing to proceed."
To sign a contract and not complete it is unprofessional in my opinion. I cannot recommend either Saba or QBS. It is a pity because the design drawings she did were fine.
I asked her why the builder I use would make any difference to my contract with her? She never replied.
