Question DetailsAsked on 11/26/2014

Architect ads but not licensed architects = state misdemeanor?ANGIES LIST

My niece is studying architecture @ Texas A&M, College Station, TX and came to visit early for TDay.
I awake today remembering she became confused after one class that stated Texas law makes it a misdemeanor for an individual/business/advertiser to sport "architect" publicly to potential Texas clients when NOT licensed by the state of Texas. So I search ANGIES LIST, College Station (not Bryan yet) to find APARTMENTS (listed #26 & 18) as ARCHITECTS.
Please explain how ANGIES has either found a loophole or is about to visit with the Attorney General
and/or
HOW this might be corrected, if need be .....

Hi,

This is Kelly M. in Member Care. Thanks for your question! I'm happy to help.

Service providers on Angie's List self-report their accreditation status; each provider on the List is responsible for reporting their licensing status through our Licensing Attestation program. Our Trade Licensing Department will then perform audits to ensure the accuracy of these claims.

Whether a provider is listed as having a license or not, we always encourage members to follow-up with service providers to make sure that their licensing information is accurate and up-to-date. The List provides a starting point, but additional research and verification is always encouraged.

If you would like for us to verify the licensing for this provider, or see if a license is required for a particular trade, we are happy to help. Just email us at memberservices@angieslist.com, and we can pass your request to our Trade Licensing Department.

Thanks again, and have a good day!

Seems obvious to searchers & perhaps even ANGIES

that an apartment complex is NOT

a licensed ARCHITECT

Agreed?

Now don't go all ballistic - did you really think apartment landlords were advertising themselves as architects ?


This is clearly another case of the AL search/sort engine getting confused as it has a tendency to do, and it rolled some Architects into the Apartment category, or vice versa. Actually probably more likely, when someone put in the apartments in the system they inadvertently pulled up the Architect category instead to list them under - so this could be a simple member error.


I am sure if you are worried about it, provide the names of the apartments that are incorrectly listed to AL member care and they will recategorize them.
