I have a 15 year old daughter who was told to sign a livery

This answer was rated:

I have a 15 year old daughter who was told to sign a livery contract for her horse. To cut a long story short she was told to move her horse to another yard which we did within a few days without the months notice we were supposed to get. The owner is now chasing me for livery she claims is unpaid, threatening to come to my work etc can she do this?

Alex Watts : But you did not sign the contract?

Hello Alex, thank you for your assistance, no I have not signed anything, my daughter was told a few weeks after moving her horse there and she was 15 at the time of signing a basic downloaded contract from the rspca website, the owner has not provided many of the facilities the contract said she should and it also expired at the end of April. Thanks Clare

Alex Watts : Well Clare you did not sign the contract and therefore you are not liable.
Alex Watts : Your daughter is under 18, not deemed to have capacity and is also not liable
Alex Watts : If the person comes to your work you can report it to the police as harassment.
Alex Watts : You should say if they want to pursue it they should put everything in writing and you will respond accordingly.

Alex Watts : the police could warn this person or even prosecute.
