Studies show that there are increasing violations of professional duties among architects and professional architects. Negligence and failure by the parties to duly perform the duties regulated by the court have instigated this review. The purpose of this study is to examine the comprehension level of architects on the task to be performed and their awareness on the implications of any breach of conduct. Literature review has discussed the branches of Tort Law related to construction practice. Tort negligence was made the focus of this study in which analysis were conducted on ten cases related to the topic. Studies have found that failure to perform tasks such as; failure to advise clients, failure to provide preliminary costs, and failure to discharge architects as prescribed by statute and code of practice have caused architects to be taken actions such as fines and to the extent of suspension or having their professional registration revoked. A survey on 61 professional architects found that the level of awareness and the depth of knowledge of architects on legal liabilities varies according to their experience in construction practice, educational background, and field of work. Experienced professional proved to have better knowledge and understanding on the legal liabilities compared to those with less experience.
