Thank you for your question. Please permit me to assist you with your concerns.
Generally speaking a contract is binding based on the terms within the agreement itself. The contract may have clauses permitting for early termination based on change in circumstance. However, if such clauses do not exist, the contract remains valid and binding against the parties. That means that it is very much in your best interest to review the cancellation options. Typically the fact that you move is not a basis for termination because the other party (the security company) is still willing and able to perform the work. Hence, that would be deemed a breach if you simply walk away, since the subject matter under the contract (the home) still exists. What might nullify the contract are if the home burned down or was destroyed by an act of god, or if the security company (or you) went bankrupt and discharged this obligation formally. Otherwise the obligation remains, which means that if there is a cancellation fee, you would be required to cover it in this instance.
Hope that clarifies.
Now they want to stop a claim I had pending because I want to cancelmcanthey do that?
