Customer Question

I have applied to a local firm to supply and fit a conservatory ,and signed paperwork to have this project done.A deposit was paid (£500) with a breakdown of how the other trades would operate,and payments being made to them for materials and completion and all final balances to be met with this company including Building Warrants (£800) paid to an Architect supplied by this company.My initial enquiry was made in April 2015 and I received a Drawing and outline specification for this Project in May 2015 for my consideration. Circumstances at the time delayed me going ahead,but I am now better placed.I contacted this firm and signed the Order and Fitting Forms on 2nd March 2016. The Local Authority Planning department say they sent a letter to the Architect on 8th April 2016 highlighting :Cause for Concern: aspects of the application.There has been very sparse communication by this Company and the Architect and at time of signing the order I posed the question of when I could expect the work to be completed and a reply of 4/6 weeks was given. I am presently (£1300) out of pocket with no notification of when this work will start and be completed.I would like to know what my Legal Rights are as I am now considering cancelling this order and seek reimbursement of money already paid.N.B.There is nothing on the forms to say that I have a right to cancel.
