Normally contractual obligations are owed only to the client commissioning the design services, although collateral warranties, assignment, and the Contracts (Rights of Third Parties) Act 1999 may create liabilities to other parties (people other than the client) as well.

This is in contrast to many other EU countries, where the obligations that may be agreed between parties are often highly regulated under the country’s Civil Code, so that the Code will be a primary reference in determining these obligations (see Chapters 17 and 18).
