Hi.

My dad has been served by a bailiff fpr not paying an abonnement on a securty buglar alarm. Originally he wrote to the company and cancelled his contract. They ignored the letter and kept demamding charges , which he didnt pay and now has had a bailiff summons.

He is in Grimaud 83310. Is there a relevant consumer advice place in that area for him to consult? What are his rights? Did he curtail correctly?

Many thanks

What did the contract say about how and when the contract could be cancelled?

Normally, to cancel any contract, you need to send a "lettre recommandé" (registered letter) usually with proof of receipt (i.e. to show that someone at the company signed for the receipt of the letter). It varies by contract, but the registered letter may have to be sent as much as 3 months in advance of when you wish the contract to end.

If he didn't cancel with a registered letter and under the terms of the contract, he may be stuck for the charges. If he has the return receipt for his letter cancelling the contract, he'll need to have that to hand to contest the charges.
Cheers,
Bev
