Hello, my name is XXXXX XXXXX it is my pleasure to assist you with your question today. It would be impossible to say how much you may be liable for if I don't actually know what losses have been suffered by the agency that can be attributed to your breach of contract. I can only go by the information you have supplied and that does not go beyond the £560 you believe the agency has lost from you. So apart from that,l I cannot say whether they have a valid claim for anything else or for how much it would be. Whatever the amount, it must be incurred as a direct result of your breach and be reasonably foreseeable in the circumstances.
Thanks. I was working as a project manager and apart from the project being delayed i cannot foresee any real losses. My concern is that I tried to resolve amicably but the agency refused to let me know what there losses could be or if they are subject to any losses from the end client. If there were any real losses I would have expected them to take me to court for them anyway. Are they able to refuse to tell me what losses they incurred?
I also offered to assist with the completion of the work in my own time
They can refuse to tell you at this stage but obviously if they go to court they will have to quantify their losses and you would then find out
The bit i am struggling with is I am willing to pay losses but they wont tell me what they are. Can they take me to court even if I have agreed to pay (last question) I would have thought this would be seen as very negative in a court setting.
