Customer Question
May I ask for you...
May I ask for you to confirm what you would understand this term of a contract to mean. "The agreement will continue for a period of one year (12 months) from the date of signature. A minimum of 12 weeks notice can be submitted in writing from either party at the renewal date of the agreement. Notice can be served within 7 days of the renewal date. If notice is not received in this specific term this agreement will automaticly renew for a further term of two years (24 months) This contract automatically renews on the two tears above. We understand it like this.... The first year is offered and if the customer is happy and gives no notice it then falls in to a two year rolling agreement (tear One)offering 12 weeks notice a renewal Tear two? would you agree?

Hello, not sure if you saw my initial query above - What is the agreement for?

it is for a cleaning service

Solicitor: Ben Jones, UK Lawyer replied 2 years ago

Thank you. So the term basically states that initially the contract will be for a period of 12 months from the date of signature. If you wanted to cancel it so that it does not go beyond the initial term and renew itself, you must serve 12 weeks’ notice. That notice must be served within 7 days of the initial renewal date. If no notice is served or it is served outside of this period, then the contract will automatically renew for another 2 years from that date. So in effect the next time it can be cancelled would be with the same notice period but in 2 years’ time.

I hope this has answered your query. I would be grateful if you could please take a second to leave a positive rating (3, 4 or 5 stars) as that is an important part of our process and recognises the time I have spent assisting you. If you need me to clarify anything before you go - please get back to me on here and I will assist further as best as I can. Thank you
