Hi, I am sorry for your trouble and possibly can help. In contract auto renewals check under the business corporations law or with the corporations department of Colorado. Usually there is specific law and regulation a mechanism that requires your express approval with the auto renew. This does mean that you will be in a position to obtain a refund for all of the down time, but if you want the renewal to stop they must stop it. Best, Sean

Sorry, this is confusing to me. So does that mean that at the end date of the latest renewal, which for us was Jan. 2016, we can cancel at anytime? No matter what their cancellation policy is? They have been providing a service all this time, that we are willing to pay for, but now they are saying that we have to give more than 30 days notice and have to pay an extra 30 days because their contract says 90 days notice. Which is against against our HOA bylaws by the way. Sorry to add so much more but I did not get a chance earlier.

OK then if this is specific an something that you entered into then abide by the contract requirements to stop the auto renew. If you were given notice that the term had changed to 90 days and did not object then it would be 90 days. If you were not given notice then cancel with 30 days notice and advise that you were not given appropriate notice of the change in contract.
