Hello Raymond my name is ***** ***** I will help you with this.
Did you sign it as a consumer or company please?Does it say that they need to give you notice when its due for renewal?Alex
Ok and was this for your business or you as a consumer?
Thanks. I think its a hard one - you should have read the terms and conditions and you agreed them. If it went to Court a Judge would have expected you to read the terms and conditions and known your obligations to cancel. Unless the agreement said they are required to give you notice upon renewal then they do not have to.
For example BT is an annual contract which bills and rolls automatically for a year, they do not give you notice because they say they do not have to.
The other side is if you dont pay, call their bluff and see if they will take you to Court. Any claim under £10,000 will be a small claim. As this was signed a year ago you could potentially argue that the terms are unfair as per the Unfair Terms in Consumer Contract Regulations 1999.
It would down to a Judge to decide whether acting in business you are still a consumer.
But that is your only argument. Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?Alex
