No not as yet but they have told me that unless i start their services they will sue for loss of profit for the year. They want to meet with me to 'sort this out'.
Hi, Thank you. There is no contract between you. The fact is they sent you a written agreement that did not reflect what you agreed - you rejected it, therefore these is no contractual relationship. You can meet them if you want, but if they never started the service provision and you did not sign anything, I would be robust about this and say there is nothing to sort out. You have no contract in place and if they take any action against you, you will defend the proceedings. 12months profit for doing nothing seems speculative to me. If they cannot prove you had a contract their claim will be unlikely to succeed. The only merit I can see in going to meet them is to try and resolve this amicably, but as they threatening to sue I think you are better served to keep all correspondence in writing. Therefore if you do have a meeting with them make sure you take a very detailed note of that meeting. Kind regard AJ
My only concern in this would be that The Office Manager also gave a provisional date to start services which was not finalized. When i took over negotiations and asked if they could if needed begin at an earlier start date they said they could not .
As i stated i did then ask that the contract be re drafted to include the services they had omitted
