Last year we got a burglar/fire alarm system.

Last year we got a burglar/fire alarm system. Didn't know it was a 42 month agreement. Going to retire in 8 months and need to cut expenses. Can I get out of it economically?


 


They did install smoke/motion/carbon monoxide detector and a small message center. They could have it all back.

Hello and thank you for contacting us. This is Dwayne B. and I’m an expert here and looking forward to assisting you today. If at any point any of my answers aren’t clear please don’t hesitate to ask for clarification.

Dwayne B. :

No, not economically. The burglar alarm companies are used to people wanting to get out of their contracts and have gotten very, very good at making them air tight.

Dwayne B. :

Nothing in your facts suggests an easy way out for you on the contract.

Dwayne B. :

This is, of course, assuming that you have a written contract in place.

Dwayne B. :

The only thing I can suggest is taking the actual contract to a local lawyer and letting them look it over to see if the contract has any "loopholes" in it.
