I'm a Complementary Practitioner and hire premises to practice. On 27 July 2012 was asked to sign a rolling Contract with one months notice period. I am being offered potential alternative premises in the same location (less than 5mile radius). 1 clause in the Contract is now causing me concern. "the Practitioner undertakes to procure that (except as otherwise agreed in writing), neither the Practioner nor any party connected to the Practitioner (including a company indirectly or directly owned by the Practitioner), will either directly or indirectly and either solely or jointly with any other person (either on its own account or as the agent of any otherperson) and in any capacity whatsoever for a period of 12 months from termination of these T & cS CARRY ON, ESTABLISH OR HAVE ANY SHARES IN A BUSINESS WHICH COMPETES WITH THE TYPE OF BUSINESS CARRIED ON BY ..... (A MULTI-DISCIPLINARY CENTRE OFFERING A VARIETY OF THERAPIES) AT TERMINATION OF THESE t & Cs within a 5 mile radius. I am self-employed and rent premises, have they the right to stop me moving my practice, which is a sole practice to another centre in the same location? The Contract was signed on 27 July 12 can I terminate, as has been in effect for less than 1 month? Thank You Francesca xxxx
