help with water heater rental contract
The contract has been running for 4 years BUT the tank was replaced for a new model 1 month ago at no charge.
the contract is in my ex's name and she has moved out and now I want the contract out of her name, but I also dont want to be paying the extortionate rental fees (They increased to $85 a month in feb!)
I would much rather either buy them out (but I assume I am on the hook as the new account holder for the full replacement cost of the heater probably something like $3500?)
Can I cancel the whole contract without fees/buy out and they just turn up and take the unit away? I can then buy my own cheaper unit and fit myself (I'm pretty handy and happy to install myself)
to be honest I am annoyed that they replaced the faulty heater, rather than repair like their marketing guff says they do "Truck stocked with the parts needed to complete repairs on the first call", but they caught us off guard during covid and I had a house full of kids who needed baths etc.
I'm pretty upset at having to pay $85 a month and want out - can anyone offer any advice please?
