Was the notice required in a contract?

Customer: replied 2 months ago.
no, they are supposed to be transferring business back to original owner. keep changing dates so I thought I would make it clear that I want it done by date I gave them. I am hopeing this happens but trying to be proactive in case I have to shut business down. I am planning on finding a lawyer anyway

Where it the obligation to return the business to the original owner originating? Was this a sale? Was there a contract regarding the sale?

Customer: replied 2 months ago.
