Thank you for your question and welcome. My name is ***** ***** I will assist you. Do their terms and conditions allow them to charge this fee? Did they state it was a no win no fee arrangement? Kind regards AJ
Thank you - as a matter of contract law silence cannot be used to imply anything. The fact they are saying your silence equals termination is incorrect. I would write back to them and say:
(i) They have failed to deliver on the service as promised;
(ii) The demands for money amount to harassment which is a criminal offence under S.40 of the Administration of Justice Act 1970;
(iii) Say you deny you owe anything and if they continue to chase you, you reserve the right to report the matter to (a) Trading Standards (b) The Police.
(iv) Say if they cannot make a claim based on the information they have provided that is their failing for which you are not liable.
If they then decided to sue you which (rightly or wrongly) is their prerogative - you will have to defend the claim.
I look forward to hearing form you.Kind regards AJ
