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 law is the contract governed by please, does it say?
United Mexican States
And does it say anything about being able to sue you in other jurisidctions?
No we dont thinkso
Ok - then you do not need to worry
They can only sue you in Mexico not the UK
Mexican Judgments can not be enforced in the UK
So even if you dont pay and they get what would be a county court Judgment there, then it wont be enforced here.
In any event you were mis-sold and could have cancelled if given the opportunity which you were not
I therefore would not be too concerned about this if the contract does not say you can be sued outside Mexico
Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?
Thank you. So should we email cancelling this agreement, quoting the mis selling. Should we ask for refund of monies.
Yes I would do this and say you are not bound
They did not give you cancellation and they should have
Because of not being told about the 5 day rule?
They misrepresented the facts and therefore you are not bound
Yes that is right
But you can ask for a refund, but if they refuse then you would have to sue in Mexico
I can't advise about that as it may be costly.
Can I clarify anything else?
Is there any chance this could affect our credit worthiness in this country?
In the UK none whatsoever
Thank you so much, this has given us great relief!
