Hello I hope you can help...Im getting married in Dec and

Resolved Question:

Hello
I hope you can help...I'm getting married in Dec and have paid in full a catering company to provide food for our reception. It is at our local golf club however the golf club have decided to take on another catering company after 28 years! and have said the new catering company will take over in Nov. We were not informed that this was happening. Do the golf club have a duty of care to honour all the bookings that our catering company have booked already..
Thank you

Alex Watts :

Hello my name is ***** ***** I will help you with this.

Alex Watts :

Did you sign terms? If so, is the catering company named, or does it say they will just provide catering please?

Customer:

We did sign terms and yes catering company is named

Alex Watts :

Ok and they want to change it which they can not

Alex Watts :

They would be in breach of contract

Alex Watts :

Unless the contract says they can amend the contract, which I can't imagine it does then they are stuck with the old caterers

Alex Watts :

They simply can NOT change terms.

Alex Watts :

A contract is just that, a contract which governs the agreement between the parties. Terms can not be changed or added afterwards

Alex Watts :

So they can NOT change the caterers at this stage, they would be in breach of contract and you could sue for loss and damage

Alex Watts :

Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?

Customer:

No thank you for your help
