I am not sure what State you are in. You may call the Board and ask them about this.

My primary concern here is not getting paid. It is limitation of liability. BTW, the "designer" I am working with is better at detailing wood framed construction than any engineer or architect I have worked with by far.

We always do. I ask for 30% startup fee in all contracts. The problems come when you finish, go through second plan check and all you have done is invoiced the client. If you have not collected at least 80-90% by the time the project is permitted you are in deep do do. That is when you find out the true integrity of your client.

Couldn’t you require progress payments and bill final well before the project built – so that you can pull you’re license if need be?

Being able to collect money.  You have no rights to sue, lien or seek judgement if you don't contract with owner.

What are the pros and cons of contracting through an unlicensed architect
and not the project owner on private projects?

Thanks in advance,
