Resumption Of Postponed Project, And Charging For Extra Work
Posted 21 September 2010 - 08:59 AM
I have worked with this client for an hour here or there on a fairly regular basis ever since, but they have never mentioned the postponed project and to be honest I had forgotten all about it.
I have just had a phone call from my client asking me all sorts of technical questions about what is needed to finish the project and when can I get it done. Obviously I told them that it's been such a long time that I would need to look at my notes and possibly stick my head into the code to give anything more than vague ideas, but as far as I could recall from memory we wouldn't need to spend too long getting it to a first 'live' test.
I have now looked at my notes and I think I was right that we're not far from finished, but I will need to have a more detailed look at the code to confirm what my notes suggest and to assess exactly what needs completing, so I can give any kind of realistic estimate of how many hours it could take. My question is, who pays for that?
During the original period I would have been able to work out an estimate at any point fairly quickly without too much research and I wouldn't have charged him, but my client decided to put it on hold for over a year, so should he not foot the bill of my getting back up to speed? I've complete dozens of projects since then and I can't be expected to remember the fine details of his project after this length of time - or can I?
