What should be included in riba 1, 2 and 3?
We have signed a contract with an architect to provide his services for RIBA 1 2 and 3. After applying for planning permission - we received an invalid notice. One of the reasons was that he had not sent in the full elevation drawings of the current property - which is to be demolished. Would you expect the architects now ask for extra money to complete these?

Not unless you have been charged a lesser fee on the off chance that less information would be acceptable. One would usually expect that the elevations would be a basic requirement, however. I have never had an application which involved demolition where full plans and elevations were not a validation requirement. We always identify the cost of this item separately on the fee quote.

No. Is the architect responsibility to provide all the required information to obtain planning permission.

No. An Architect should submit all the elevations for the demolition. He mus have drawn the proposed so he had the information to hand.
