Hello my name is ***** ***** I will help you with this.
What does the contract say about cancellation or breach for non payment please?
Customer: replied 3 years ago.

Not too sure, however if they have not paid us on time do we have any rights regarding not continuing with the contract,

Expert:  Ash replied 3 years ago.
You need to check the terms of the contract. I can't say yes for sure because it depends on what the terms are. But I would think there is a term that says if there is late/non payment you are entitled to end it - but you need to check.
It is all going to be in the contract. There will be a breach or cancellation clause, so check that. I suspect you can but without seeing it, that would be impossible to say. But check the terms.
Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?
