Until you have signed anything, you are not bound by anything.
In addition, you have seven days from when you receive all the
documents back, to cancel in any event under the Distance Selling Regulations notwithstanding
your cancellation rights under the Consumer Credit Act.
I would write back to them and tell them that you have been
advised that you are under no obligation to pay anything and that if they feel
differently, they should take you to the Small Claims Court.
I wouldn't be paying anything unless the court ordered me to,
based upon the fact that you have given.
You are possibly liable for the first month's rental if you agree
to that but they would not be getting it out of me easily. I too am of the
opinion that you get seven days from when the paperwork comes back to you, not
from when you send it out.
Does that answer the question? Can I assist further or answer any

PS. I use voice type, voice recognition typing because I only
type with two fingers and it would take me ages. Sometimes, a computer does not
hear me correctly and you will get an incoherent word. I do try to but
sometimes they slip through. I apologise therefore if anything doesn't make
sense. It is me losing it, not you. Just ask if anything is not clear please.
