Hello
Customer: replied 8 months ago.
contacted you yesterday regarding cancelling contract with advertising company but my husband isn't sure if the letter will work as it says on top of contract that it cannot be cancelled.
Expert:  F E Smith replied 8 months ago.

Of course it says on the top of the contract that it can’t be cancelled.

However if you simply don’t pay them, they will take you to court potentially.

We discussed this at length on the telephone.

What I have suggested and works 9 times out of 10 is that you avoid going to court in the first place by paying them a much smaller amount of money which they will hopefully accept rather than have the trouble to go to court.

It would be a windfall for them to have £250 for actually doing nothing!

Nothing is ever guaranteed to work. I can only tell you that my experience is that this technique is effective far more times than not.

Ok That's fine. Last email from them last eve was that he was passing the account over to Credit Management Company who deal with debt, contracts and legal issues.
So I'm going to send the letter and cheque today
Expert:  F E Smith replied 8 months ago.

That is exactly what I would expect. Let’s face it, you are no worse off by sending the letter and the cheque. The worst that can happen is that they send it back.

If they cash it and still take you to court, you have the letter as your defence and you could ask the court to award costs against them on the basis that any future claim is completely unreasonable.
