When an architect in novated to a contractor that is liquidated at a later date, can an architect be re-novated to a client?

Novation usually involves the removal of one party to a contract in order for it to be replaced by a third party. There can be a legally binding agreement in which an architect is re-novated to a client, but one must be wary of the legal implications. Attempting to reverse and / or override the novation process will require an assiduous rewording or alteration of the novation agreement. It is highly likely that liability problems will emerge from this process, so it should be entered into with caution and infrequently.
