Ah ok. Its bad news then I am afraid.
Unless it has a force majeure clause technically you are liable.
That clause would say where there is an act which is outside of the control of both of you, the contract would be suspended.
But if it doesn't have such a clause, that is a problem. It means you cant rely on it.
You could try and argue the contract is frustrated, that is not capable of being carried out.
But without a force majeure clause its not as strong.
But sadly that is your only argument.
Can I clarify anything for you about this today, please?
