I have a long time running project. Its been running for about 6 months. The project is very big. The lead developer/team leader designed the project and the whole project is in his brain. He knows all ins and outs. I also know almost everything. But I am not confident like him.

Problem is recently he is charging quite high for simple bug fix and small change request. I am worried if I end the contract what will be the future of the project. I had 2-3 public demos. I must launch soon. The project is still in development alpha.

  1. What happens to the project if I end the contract?
  2. Are the high charges is because he knows I can not end the contract now?

  1. What happens to the project if I end the contract?

You will have more work, you will gain more confidence, the project will be yours.

  1. Are the high charges is because he knows I can not end the contract now?

This is a possibility. If you want a confirmation, suggest him that you can't afford such high charges and therefore that you will do the work yourself. He may end the contract or lower his charges.

  • He may have enough of the project (being bored with it), and increase the charges so that the money overcomes his boredom. – gnasher729 Nov 27 '16 at 23:15
