My partner was going to purchase and run a shop, so he hired a draftsman to draw up some plans to present to the local council. Nothing was signed. My partner went to one appointment, and at a later date, the draftsman drives 45 minutes to view the location of the proposed shop. After doing more local research, we decided against the shop and cancelled the draftsman. He has now sent as a 900$+ bill. Do we have to pay it under contract law or is he trying to just get money out if us? Thank you for any help.
