they say that he did not make it clear to them that he was acting on his own behalf. However, he could not have possibly done so as he is not a partner in LLP. Also, the venue now saying that they did not understand that him and the partners of LLP were two distinct entitites. they assumed that since he is teaching there and signs a tick box that the space was used for the hours rented that he was acting on their behalf. Even though he clearly stated to the venue that he cannot pay on their behalf and will only pay f the contract is transferred into his own name. This was done by the venue so that he could pay. But after being scared off by the claims of the LLP partner that was forcing X to pay, the venue is not "backtracking" and saying that they did not fully understand who is who. We are about to go to the meeting with the venue manager in 10 mins...
Hello, yes, we have al the email trails where they ask him to pay and he politely explains why he feels this is inappropriate, several times, and asks the partner to please continue paying her own rent as usual. He is not really under any official contract, as he does not think he signed any. The other teachers contracts (teaching agreements) do not have anything on termination at all, just information on how they need to behave, dress and pay their own taxes.
The venue I think does not really care under whose name the contract is as long as it is paid - we are about to find out more at the meeting with them shortly.
The LLP reacted in opposed manner to the contract changing hands saying they never intended to let go of the rental (even though they were past due date of payment and effectively in forfeit). It is because they were in forfeit that the venue agreed to transfer into my friend's name. However, everyone is backtracking now saying they did not understand what was happening. My friend is disheartened by the treatment he received and no longer wishes to work for LLP and would like to use the space for his own purposes. If you need any more detail, I am happy to provide as much as needed, but will be back in a couple of hours. thank you again for your help
LLP demands that he takes his name off the rental agreement or otherwise they will sue him for fraudulent actions while in their employ and for damage to the business. He already met with the partners on Monday 18th of Feb advising that he no longer wishes to work for them and it has been acknowledged by them in a letter they sent him where they threaten to sue unless he takes his name off and releases the booking to be taken back by them.
