As the contract legally ended on the 25/02/2014, am I legally bound by law under the terms and conditions to terminate a contract which is legally ending in 30 days anyway???
Yes, 30 days prior to the contract ending anyway. I saw no need as the contract legally ended on the 25/02/2014. Why would I terminate a contract that would legally end in 30 days anyway??? Had I been admitted to hospital and unable to give 30 days termination notice, they would have continued to remove funds from my account even though the contract legally ended. This has to be illegal. Surely they have no legal right to remove funds from an account after it has legally ended irrespective of the 30 day requirement!!!!!
There was never any written or verbal agreement by me that I agreed to a rolling contract. Neither the shop or the company informed me of this and I would not have agreed had I been informed.
Sorry to be a pain, surely terms and conditions are a requirement of a contract, they are not law. Surely the company are required to inform customers that the contract is a ROLLING contract not a fixed term contract. What you are saying is that this company can legally remove thousands of pounds from an account, simply because they failed to notify them 30 days prior to termination which one would assume is a fixed contract having not be informed of anything different.
Surely, legal people as yourselves should be pressuring the government to change this ridiculous situation.
ok Jo, I am defeated but I still say this situation needs a serious review, this amounts to legal theft. I will let you go for a break now, put your feet up and have a cup of tea...Ian
