n Nov 08 I signed up for a cleaning franchise with a looong and complex contract.

In June 09 I notified them I wouldnt be continuing with the franchise, having spotted we were going bust and the death of family member led to huge changes in our circumstances.


In short;

the support, training and advice was almost non existent.

They didnt contest the business plan i put forward.

There claims of success etc, were grossly exagerrated

We ran out of money!


They claim we didnt terminate in the prescribed manner;

i) giving them my 0800 number (which I tried)

ii) giving them all my client details, (which I didnt have due to pc failure)


They have subsequently tried to claim damages for "failure to operate the franchise" on a monthly basis since then, till now (about £5K)


The have invoiced us (myself and my partner) personally, despite me being the only signature on the 'contract'.


Can they invoice me without having proven breach?

e.g. going to court

Can they claim damages they "see fit"?

e.g. proving above and then proving such losses?

(they are claiming way in excess of the level we actually achieved)


They have now set a debt collector a task of collecting this money, can the legally do this without having proven we actually owe this money?
