We received a cancellation of our contract, being a sales agent for 12 years.The contract stated that a cancellation should be in form of a registered letter.Is somit the cancellation invalid?Kind regards,Irene
Dear Customer,thanks for using Just Answer.It depends on what the parties of the contract wanted and why they wanted the registered letter.Was it in order to prove the reception of the letter or should the validity depend on the letter being registered.If there is noting in the contract I should think that the validity of the cancellation does depends on the letter being sent in registered formThere is a decision from our highest civil court from 1995 that says that the written form is enoughSo the cancellation is valid , alasI hop I was able to helpIf so please give me a positive ratin
Thank you very much, one more question isleft open, can I say we never received the fax. Is the sending of a fax enough proof that it has been received.
Dear Customer,thanks for clarifyingThis is an entirely different matter altogetherThe reason why the letter had to be registered is that the one who sends it has to prove that it reached its destinationIf he cannot prove that the termination is not valid, because a termination only gets valid when it is receivedI hope I was able to helpIf so please give me positive feedbackthank you so much
