Question DetailsAsked on 9/11/2019

Can intent to work payment be recuperated?

We paid a contractor an intent to work payment to build our house. The payment was for creating an estimate, and holding a spot on their schedule. We signed the intent to build late last year. The house was supposed to be completed by late spring this year. We had regular meetings with the contractor, but were not able to get a complete estimate. In spring of this year, they sent an email stating that they needed a contract signed to build the house within a week. They also stopped answering questions we had previously asked. At this point we had no confidence that the contractor was capable of building our house, and began to get other bids. The contractor caught wind of this and cut us loose. Should we be able to recuperate the intent to work we paid? We started looking elsewhere, but the contractor was dragging their feet to the point things simply were not moving forward.
