We are all practising lawyers with clients and offices and other users to deal with. Although we endeavour to reply in a timely fashion, it’s not an instant service and therefore there may sometimes be delay minutes or sometimes even hours.
We do try to keep delays as little as possible.
Whilst they will say that you are bound to pay these fees, They will chase you in all probability, but I don’t actually know any of them that have gone to court.
On the contrary, people have taken it to court to get refunds!
If you had signed this not on their premises, you would have 7 days to cancel under the Distance Selling Regulations. However that doesn’t apply if you signed in their office.
If they start to chase you for the money, post up again and I can tell you how to deal with their claim.
Meanwhile, if you don’t want to carry on with this, give them written notice as soon as you can.
