Hello, my name is***** am a qualified lawyer and I will be assisting you with your question today.
Did the original contract say it would be a rolling one and automatically renew at the end of the initial 48 months?
Yes of course thanks
Hi there, assuming he contract did not state it was a rolling one and automatically renewable at the end of the initial term, they cannot tie you into a new term without advising you this would happen and seeking you acknowledgement to it. Therefore, if they never advised you that this was a rolling contract and told you that they are renewing it and seek your consent, then this is unlikely to be a fair or legally extended contract and you can indeed claim you are not bound by it. They can claim that you are but you simply do not have to pay the anything in relation to it and it is up to them to pursue you for that - I doubt they will go as far as court and even if they did, it would be extremely difficult for them to show they have a valid case.
So the letter you have is fine and will hopefully tell them they have no case here.
