My MIL used to have a "right to the point" phrase, that often annoyed
me, but i find I use it myself, now. That phrase was, "It's just good
business." This was usually preceeded by whatever her expectations
were (fill in that blank with whatever are the conditions under which
you will resume work on the project, turn over any of the information
to them that another person paid for, and will complete the work.
Identify the level of completion you'll deliver for a fixed price
within a given time frame, with at least half prepaid.) You're running
a business, but that family member seems to think your running a
garage sale or amateur auction.
I agree that is sounds suspicious. The rush could be to give it to the
person as a gift before it's too late, or to get it before it becomes
part of the estate, and inherited by someone who won't share it.
