I was hiring a school hall to run classes, and the school used a company called School Lettings Solutions to hire out their facilities and take payments from hirers like myself. SLS took payments monthly via my business visa debit card. In mid-March when schools were closed I had just paid for the upcoming month and SLS wasn't replying to any messages. Then a few weeks ago we were told it had gone into administration. Now that schools are open and they are hiring their facilities again I asked the school if they can give us a few free weeks to make up for the lost payments. They said that the financial loss is mine to bear, not the school's. Am I right in thinking that SLS was the school's chosen representative and was no different than if the school had hired the hall to my business directly, and I've paid the hire fee in good faith to their agent, and so the school should be liable for this?
