Collection procedure
          What is the procedure if a client is moving offices and looking to terminate a contract early?
          With the exception of the PERS Agreement for medical alert, the subscriber has no “early termination” right.  A subscriber who wants to terminate early is required by the Standard Form Agreements to pay everything owed to date and 80% of the balance of the contract, sometimes equipment too.  We’ve covered this scenario in recent articles.  It warrants additional discussion now because I think we can anticipate an increase in subscriber defaults in 2022 because of the failing economy, increasing prices, pull-back on government subsidies and what I can only assume will be some restoration of normalcy to our struggling court system; maybe we can get cases processed in a reasonable time period.
          I’d like to answer the question by discussing the wrong way to handle the subscriber inquiry for “early termination”.  This subscriber at least called before it defaulted.  If the inquiry is genuine you can assume the subscriber understand that something is owed.  I may be too optimistic in this response because I suppose the subscriber could mean [or the question may mean] how to handle a subscriber who simply calls to say it is no longer paying. 
          You have to be careful how you respond, especially if you intend to hold the subscriber to the contract, including referring it to K&K for collection.  You have to be very careful that you do not give the subscriber the impression that you are accepting the phone call requesting termination of services as a termination of the contract.  You can agree to terminate the service but you need to be clear that the subscriber is still responsible for the payments due under the contract until the end of the term. 
          Perhaps the best response you can give is, “thanks for the call, I suggest you read our contract for what happens if you default in payment”. 
          Should you accept less than what the contract calls for?  Yes; how much less depends on a bunch of factors, some of which may be
  *  your cost of installing the job and whether you made a profit or suffered a loss
  *  how long the subscriber made payment and how many payments are left
  *  why the subscriber is terminating
  *  your guess regarding the subscriber’s financial stability  
  *  whether the subscriber is moving to  parts unknown
          You will also have to consider whether you want to be bothered chasing a defaulting subscriber.  Remember, this is different than a delinquent subscriber, for whom some hope remains.  You need to consider whether you want to commit time and energy in the collection pursuit or just move on and look for new accounts.  Of course sending the defaulted account to K&K’s collection department saves you plenty of time because the K&K collection lawyers and paralegals are well-trained and fully capable to handle the collection with minimal involvement from you. 
          You want rule of thumb?  If you can get 75% take it.  If you are in the profit zone already with the account take 50%.  Less than that, send to K&K [but only if you’re using Kirschenbaum Contracts ™]
