Ask a Law Question, Get an Answer ASAP!
Hello, I’m Ben, a UK lawyer and will be dealing with your case today. Firstly, I need to ask some initial questions to determine the legal position.
How long ago was this?
Thank you. I will get back to you with my answer as soon as I can, which will be at some point today. The system will notify you when this happens. Please do not reply in the meantime as this may unnecessarily delay my response. Many thanks.
Many thanks for your patience. You can rely on the discussions and promises by the manager you communicated with, even if he has now left. As he would have had the authority to make such decisions, they will be binding on the company, even if they do not agree to it. What you would have to do is consider to still proceed with the cancellation and not pay anything further and leave the matter in their hands to take further as they see fit…if at all.
If they are not paid for the contract then it is up to them to pursue you. They may make threats and demands but unless they go to court and win, they cannot force you to pay. Even if they do claim, it would be in the Small Claims Court and you won’t have to pay their legal costs even if you lose. So it maybe a risk worth taking if you are adamant you want to cancel.
