Advance payment is normal and it is a part of the whole process but the charge is often nominal and if the one you are getting your work done from is charging or asking for high rates of advance before even starting the works then he needs to be replaced. The one who demands unnecessary money before work as advance are often those who can leave the work midways and may not contact you even after as well.
