How to Cancel a Contract for Services

How to Cancel a Contract for Services

Step 1

Review your contract to determine how much notice is required to cancel services. Some companies require 30 days for cancellation and will continue to bill for that 30-day period. If the contract provides for a notice, be prepared to submit your cancellation request in time to avoid additional billing.

Step 2

Review your contract to determine the method of notice the business requires for cancellation. Some companies will cancel services by phone, but other companies may require written notice to cancel service.

Step 3

Contact the business using the notification method required by the contract to submit your cancellation. If the business requires written notice of cancellation, be sure to provide your account number, the name on the account and the date you wish to discontinue service.
