hi will try and be accurate and to the point as could end up long winded. I have a customer who after finishing a previous job ask me for the price to decorate a living room. They would supply materials and move all furniture. Customer uses Facebook Messenger to contact me. I sent quote to them in second week of October via Messenger and got a reply 19 days later asking to book me to do work mid December. I sent a message following morning with the dates I could book job in and got reply that evening. job was booked to start in 6 weeks time. Week before I was due to start job a message to give her list of materials and sort out about getting into house to do job. I get a reply saying sorry to mess you around but i need to cancel this work. I asked if they wanted to re book was told yes and would get back to me in 5 days. After 14 days and no reply I sent another message asking if still wanting to re book, no answer. 23 days later I sent another message stating I had not heard from them and felt they where messing me about and by cancelling short notice makes it hard for me to fill that space with another job and I had lost out on £XXX.XX money and by them accepting the quote there was a contract setup between us and as they had cancelled late and didn't re book I would be looking at charging them part/all of the loss of earnings and to contact me if they felt this was unfair. response from them was circumstances had changed and that they felt 7 days was fair notice and they wouldn't be paying any or all of the money and would defiantly not re book me. If you read this far thank you, my questions are. I feel they have breached contract under UK contract law. could this be wrong? Should I seek legal advice before moving forward with breach of contract letter before action or do it myself? Is it straight forward or is there anything I have missed?
