Thank you for your reply but I got an email from the boss - see this?
I wrote to ask you whether you would like to resolve the dispute over your contract with us before we pass to our solicitors. In fact, they already have the documents but I asked them yesterday to hold off until I had made contact with you.Are you maintaining the stance that you with to renege on the contract you signed? If so, then we will have to resort to the courts to enforce payment.
Thank you for your response.
Can you tell me what to say to him in writing?
This is for Buachaill
Hello, I hope this finds you well.
I've handed in a 3 months notice to Regus in March of this year and they hold my two months deposit and they used that up to cover 2 months and then they are demanding me to pay the 3rd monthly fee because of 12 months contract. I was thinking of your words. I think I should receive two month deposit back and 3rd month to be cancelled because they already vacated my office to someone else as soon as I handed in a notice. Therefore their loss is zero. Can I use this?
I inform you that there is no such thing as a non-cancellable contract in law and your company is under a duty to mitigate your loss. As there was no performance under the contract after I handed in a notice, then there is no money owing. Therefore I await two month deposit to be refunded back to me due to the fact that you rented my office to someone as soon as I ended my tenancy agreement.
