Hi There, I'm new to this site and was wondering if someone can give me advice. We are a small business with 4 shops around the country. But business has been bad and with all my wages and rent been growing negatively over the last 9 month with about 25k a month and the backups are finished. I have 2, 2year contracts in malls that has still 1year to go, but at this rate it would be better to close my shops. Is there some way that I can get out of this contract with the new consumer act, or is there anyway that one can cancel a lease should you not be able to make payment any more. These are big companies and their contracts are tight, can anyone help?
