Hello my name is XXXXX XXXXX I will help you with this. Please note that I am a working Solicitor and may be on and offline as I have to attend Court and meet with clients, even at weekends. As such you may not get an instant response when you reply as this is not an ‘on demand’ live service, but rest assured I will be giving your question my immediate attention upon return. There is no need to wait here, you will get an email when I reply.
What do the terms say about paying the continuing fee please?
Then you do not have to pay.
The contract is binding on both parties.
It needs to be clear for both sides and therefore if they want to rely on the term about a continuing fee, the agreement needs to say that.
If it does not they can not seek payment.
The person who relies on a term must have it in the contract.
If they can not show it you do not have to pay it
Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?
You probably do not need to - if it is not there, then you can just challenge them.
Ask them which clause they are reliant on
If they can not show you or it does not say - then you do not need to pay.
Does that help?
Can I clarify anything?
