Does a new agency contract superceedthe old one

I have complained numerous times to my agent about the level of service I am receiving and asked to be released from my 20 week contract. After several attempts to negotiate or cease my contract they agreed to reduce their fee if I reduce the asking price of my property. They attended my home and signed a new contract which reflects the new asking price and fee %. If i now have a new contract in place even though the sole agency period on the old contract had not expired, can I invoke the 14 days cooling off period and be free of both contracts, I was of the understanding that once a new contract is in force the old contract can not be enforced if I cancel the new one?

  • Hello - yes, the new contract should supercede the old one (unless there's something in the small print to the contrary). You're free to leave within the cooling off period. If they say anything different, feel free to post on here and I'd be happy to look into it further. Thanks, Ruban
