Ok. But what does it say about you ENDING the contract?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.

sorry

i said you 3 times

the contract say

Expert:  Ash replied 2 years ago.
Yes I understand it says you must finish the roof within 8 weeks, that is what the contract wants you to do.
What does the contract say about you or the customer ENDING the contract. Terminating it, stopping it.
Thanks!
Customer: replied 2 years ago.

i try to find

wait please

thanks

Expert:  Ash replied 2 years ago.
Thanks. Also have you been paid anything yet?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.

they just paid me £2300 for labour work which one was done

Expert:  Ash replied 2 years ago.
But is that for everything is just the work which you have carried out?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.

the full price by contract for the roof is£58000

£2300 was paid for start do roof and hourly work

Expert:  Ash replied 2 years ago.
Ok. You need to let me know if there is a termination clause in the contract before I can provide an answer.
Customer: replied 2 years ago.

i can not find the termination clause in contract

may be they not provided this information on contract

Expert:  Ash replied 2 years ago.
OK. It may be that if you have agreed to do the work for a fixed fee they may try and make you do it. However if you have done everything which you have said you will, ie the labour for £2300 that will be the end of the contract.
However there is a contract whereby you agreed to do the work and provide it for £58,000. That is you have agreed to do it and it may be that they sue you for not doing it.
That is why unless the contract says you can terminate then you can not. I am sorry if this is not the answer you want and certainly not the one I want to give you, but I have a duty to be honest.
Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?
