The contract includes a notice of right to cancel the contract. It states that we must do so in writing and deliver personally or send by post or email to the person named below. That person is stated to be SUB TERRA DRIVES
at 50, Irwell Street, Halton, Widnes WA8 0EP. The contract order number is ***** on this notice by the contractor. We have given notice by email, fax and special delivery letter which Royal mail failed to deliver, no reply at the
door. We have evidence of this communication and ask if this is appropriate in law for the purposes of cancellation. We have telephoned
to try for confirmation without success. This is the contract that was sign
by us but we have just noticed that the contractor failed to sign where applicable. We become more concerned that we are dealing with difficult people at every turn.
Thank you for that reply. Can I add that the notice of right to cancel the contract includes the following. If we cancel in accordance with our rights after work has commenced we are advised that reasonable payment may be due for any work carried out. We have acknowledged this within our
notice to cancel, but with no response. Can you please advise the meaning of UCTA. Is this reasonable payment what you refer to as lost profits. From the response so far we anticipate a more than reasonable heavy charge, but given the opportunity we would close this matter on that basis. We are concerned that we are being told that we should pay in cash for this contract service, another example of how foolish we consider we have been.
