I'm assuming you're looking for advice on how to terminate this agreement?

How long ago was the deposit paid?

Thanks for clarifying.

Unfortunately this is outside my area of expertise so I am going to opt out.

Another lawyer will be along soon to help you.

All the best

Hello my name is Alex and I will help you with this. Please note that I am a working Solicitor and may be on and offline as I have to attend Court and meet with clients, even at weekends. As such you may not get an instant response when you reply as this is not an ‘on demand’ live service, but rest assured I will be giving your question my immediate attention upon return. There is no need to wait here, you will get an email when I reply.

I see the expert has opted out - do you still need help?
