3. Payment and Duration
This contract will commence from the date of the first payment and will last for a minimum period of 1 year from that date.
In regard to the Gold and Platinum service, the client will need to be a member for a minimum of 3 months from date of first payment before the discounted representation is provided on all new issues. Early cancellation of contract will leave the client liable for the total costs of any trade union representation provided. Also failure to maintain regular monthly payment would stop the member receiving the discounted representation and if fees are reinstated it would be deemed as the membership starting again and they would be treated as a new member.
Castle reserves the right to increase the amount of monthly subscription fee but only in circumstances where any overheads of Castle have increased due to unforeseen circumstances. No such increase in the monthly subscription fee will be affected without providing the client with 30 days written notice.
The client shall have the right to terminate this contract up to 14 days from its first payment date if the service is used within the first 14 days you waiver the right to the 14 day cooling off period after this time cancellation will be after a 12 month period from the date of first payment; this will be done by providing Castle with three months written notice. Upon such termination, after the 14 day cooling off period, the client will be liable for payment of the monthly subscription fee in respect of any unexpired terms of this agreement together with interest on such sum at the rate of 8% per annum or any fee accumulated costs in regard to direct representation.
Castle will be entitled to terminate the Agreement in the event that the client has breached any term of this contract to include but not limited to a failure to disclose all relevant material or in circumstances where the client has hindered any case or issue or where the client has failed to follow any advice provided by Castle, its Castle Advisor or any other agent or advisor of Castle. In these circumstances, the client will be responsible for payment of monthly subscription in respect of any unexpired term of this Agreement together with interest on such sum at the rate of 8 %per annum.
At the expiry of the one year period from the date of the first payment, this contract will automatically renew for a further period of one year.
If we have to issue court proceedings against the client for non-payment of membership fees this will incur administration charges of £150 plus court costs.
Without prejudice to our other rights and remedies under these terms and conditions, if any sum payable is not paid on the due date, we shall be entitled forthwith to suspend or cancel the provision of services to you.
