Consumer Case

Services rendered and remuneration not received

I am an Interior designer. I was approach for designing office space by a company. They asked me to prepare first trial interior design of the office. I have visited their office and prepared 3 layouts. The designs were modified various times. Finally my 10th version of the design was accepted by them. After that they messaged me that they do not want to go further with me and rejected my designs. Then I raised a bill of Rs. 1,00,000/- for my services which I rendered in last two months. I had sent several reminders but they said they wont pay me as we don't have any written agreement for this. Later I came to know that they are using my designs through different contractors. I have the correspondences and approvals from them as proof of our interaction. I feel cheated by the company. Please suggest me a solution to recover money.

Expert Advice


A written instrument between parties is not essential to establish an agreement. Oral agreement or conduct of parties also constitutes valid contract. In your case by their conduct both parties have established contractual relationship. You can file a suit for performance of contract and recovery of your dues.
