We’ve paid for our draftsman to draw up preliminary drawings. He hasn’t done the working drawings yet, as this will be an additional cost. We were thinking about having another draftsman do the working drawings up. Are these plans deemed legally ours at this stage?

I would have thought not.
But I guess it depends on what your contract with the draftsman says - you signed a contract with them, right?
Sometimes there will be a clause that even though the drawings remains the property of the draftsman, you are entitled to use the drawings to develop further or for the builder to use. So it depends on what was agreed initially.
