    Hi all.
    Does anyone no if a verbal(over the phone)contract is legally binding.
    My boss when we relocated was hounded by the shower of **** known as OPUS energy non stop until he agreed to use them over the phone.
    since then hes tried to get out of it to be told the call was recorded and that's legally binding.
    they ring constantly after money.
    not a good business to deal with...any help would be gratefull

    I had the opposite experience with OPUS. Straightforward and competitive for my consumption.

    Yes the phone contract is legal.

    This is a business energy company, business energy doesn't "enjoy" most of the perks domestic energy gets. Cooling off periods don't exist, switching via the likes of the Energy Club doesn't exist, it's almost always done over the phone and prices are more expensive in the first place (though a business can reclaim/offset those costs further down the line).

    hi lynn opus.
    have tried your customer care (if that's what it is) no help at all.
    should have googled the company before having any phone conversation as its all taped and that's apparently a contract !!!
