Hi - my name is ***** ***** I'll be glad to assist.
You are bound by the contract, and if you signed up for 3 years worth of service, then you're obligated to pay the security service for that period of time.....and if you cancel, the security service would be entitled to damages caused by your cancellation. However, the security service should only be entitled to the lost profit it would have made had you fulfilled the period of the contract.
Most contracts call for a liquidated damage amount in the event that the service is cancelled/terminated early.....so you should look at your contract to see what it says.
But, you're not going to be able to cancel and walk away without exposure UNLESS the security service agrees/allows it.
The best option would be if you could transfer the service to your new home and continue it there.....you'd have to offer that option to the security service and see if it is agreeable, but that'd be a way that you could get something for your money and fulfill the obligation and avoid being sued for breaching the agreement, etc.
Otherwise, if you cancel the agreement, the security service would be entitled to damages for the early termination.
