11. Plan Modification:

​The user agrees that any modifications that may be undertaken to the house designs designed by Skylimit Architects do not alter the fact that Skylimit Architects continues to own the copyright and will resell the plan with the plan modification. Should the user want the modified plan not to be modified, the user will be required to pay full rate per square meter.  Such modifications shall be deemed to be final, complete and acceptable to the User after 24 hours have passed, after electronic copies of the plans have been delivered without any written notice to the contrary.  Plan Modifications will also be deemed to be final, complete and acceptable to the User who collects such plans from Skylimit Architects offices once collection/delivery documents have been signed by the User or his representative who collects them.  Drawing revisions, for any other reason, requested after this final delivery date and other than provided for elsewhere in these conditions are considered additional services and shall be billed as additional services.

The purchaser undertakes to abide and conform to their local authority, body corporate and/or Homeowner’s Association requirements. The Purchaser agrees to have read and understood all building and architectural requirements imposed by his local authority, body corporate and/or Homeowner’s Association prior to purchasing the plans and shall not in any way impose such responsibility and/or obligation to comply with such requirements on Skylimit Architects.  All revisions and modifications to plans required by your local authority, body corporate and/or Homeowner’s Association are not included as part of the modification services as requested by the purchaser and shall, where provided, be billed as additional services.

Skylimit Architects shall assume that the client has obtained sufficient information and knowledge pertaining to all other requirements by his local authority, body corporate and/or Homeowner’s Association prior to accepting such modifications from us.  Any further architectural services to make changes for compliance with local building codes will be charged as additional services.  Payment for modifications is due at the time of ordering such modifications unless otherwise agreed upon in writing.  Skylimit Architects shall withhold the release of any drawings and/or any contract documents, if payment on invoices is not received on time. If the scope of the project or modifications is changed materially, the fees for modifications shall be adjusted accordingly.

Either party upon seven (7) days written notice may terminate the modifications agreement.  If the termination is by the user, no refund of payment will be made by regardless of the time that lapsed between entering into the agreement by both parties and the time of such termination.  If the termination is by Skylimit Architects, a partial refund can be offered.  Any such partial refunds to the Client shall be calculated at the sole discretion of Skylimit Architects and shall not include any amounts paid for the original drawings purchased from by the user.  Notwithstanding, all other provisions in these terms and conditions, house plans on our website were created to comply with the South African National Building Regulations and other statutory requirements
