An architect or engineer does not warrant the solvency or capability of a builder or contractor whose tender is accepted, but he is bound to give his employer the benefit of any information he may have in respect to such solvency or capability, and not to allow his employer to enter blindly into a contract with a person whom he has any reason to suspect of being unreliable1. And it would seem that, in some circumstances, he might be liable for not making reasonable inquiries2.
