Tips for Breaking Contracts:

It is sad, but sometimes contractual disputes happen both personally and professionally. Here are some general tips to help you get started with this process of ending a contract…

  • Keep original documentation relating to an agreement you made.
  • Document problems that arise and what steps, if any, were taken to resolve an issue at hand. If issues are not resolved to your satisfaction, be prepared and persistent in going up the proper chain of command.
  • Be firm but civil in stating your case for leaving a company.
  • If needing further assistance, seek counsel in your next steps for proceeding with a contractual breakup. This includes talking to the Better Business Bureau (BBB), a lawyer, reading articles, and talking to your personal/professional contacts for advice. Make notes on their feedback as well.
  • More information can be found at http://www.ehow.com
    and searching for such things as ending contracts with your cell phone/TV provider and/or ending business contracts. You can also research and find other useful resources online to further assist you. Good luck to you in this challenging endeavor.
  • Remember that all change has some pros and cons. You must decide what is most important to you. For instance, provider A might offer unlimited everything, but coverage is spotty at best. Provider B might only carry a channel in HD verses both SD and HD due to a contractual agreement with a specified channel, Lifetime for instance.
  • Switching is not necessarily the answer, as all every provider has disputes with TV networks. You have to decide what you can accept and cannot accept from your current provider.
  • It is worth noting that some TV channels are public information/access; thus, they choose to pay a provider to get their programming on the air. Examples of this include UP, formerly GMC, and INSP or the Inspiration Network. Larger channels ask the TV provider to pay a certain amount to receive programs, whereas the smaller channels, like UP pay the provider to carry their network.
  • Hopefully one day, disputes between TV providers and networks will be a thing of the past. Consumers, too, will perhaps have more choice in how they receive their programming services.
  • Weigh all options carefully when trying to reach a decision. Do this always, whether dealing with personal and business contracts, or in handling daily life issues. Thoroughly research all possibilities by talking with trustworthy others, or through other formats such as the Internet or print media.
