Contract Law

“Pay nothing for 18 months”

“No sign up fees”

“No interest, payment plans”

“No Win, No Fee”

From signing up at the gym, refinancing a credit card, to signing up with your lawyer, these are the slogans we are hearing. 

It sounds enticing, it sounds risk free.

It is, in most cases, a legally binding contract. These contracts have laws that surround them and must be adhered to. When drafted correctly, these slogans relate to contracts which provide access to what are often essential services or products in our society for those who otherwise are unable to afford them.  

If you are unsure about whether the contract you have entered into is indeed as good as it is made out to be, you should seek legal advice BEFORE signing. We encourage all of our clients to seek advice on any client agreement and it is important that all clients know what their rights are, regardless of the transaction. You also have that right when you enter into any agreement. But you should act quickly if you have already signed up, as cooling off periods don’t last forever.                                                                          

Our team at Kelly Legal are here for the every day person, with every day concerns. We just tell you how it is, in down to earth terms. Whether you are negotiating a huge deal, or trying to work out whether the fine print of an offer is best for your individual circumstances, we’re with you. 

Come and see our team to ensure what you have entered into or are considering entering into is indeed the best way forward for you.
