Fixed-term or permanent?
Check whether you have a permanent contract or not: this is also specified on your invoice.
An operator is not allowed to charge anything for the termination of a contract
- If you have a permanent contract;
- If your fixed-term contract started at least six months ago.
You have acquired an appliance by way of a conditional sale?
Good to know: If you have acquired a free or bargain price appliance (e.g. a mobile phone or a tablet) from your operator, he can demand an extra compensation. Even if you have signed a fixed-term contract. Or if you do not cancel the contract before six months have passed.
That extra compensation must not exceed the residual value of the appliance. The residual value should be stated in a repayment table annexed to the contract.
If you look in that table at the month you are in you can see what extra compensation is due.
You have entered into a 24 month contract. When you signed the contract, you “bought” the appliance for € 1.
The repayment table annexed to the contract is shown below:
|Month||Residual value||Month||Residual value|
|0||€ 240||13||€ 110|
|1||€ 230||14||€ 100|
|2||€ 220||15||€ 90|
|3||€ 210||16||€ 80|
|4||€ 200||17||€ 70|
|5||€ 190||18||€ 60|
|6||€ 180||19||€ 50|
|7||€ 170||20||€ 40|
|8||€ 160||21||€ 30|
|9||€ 150||22||€ 20|
|10||€ 140||23||€ 10|
|11||€ 130||24||€ 0|
You decide to terminate the contract after 8 months: the operator can then ask a compensation of € 160.
Each month the same amount should be subtracted from the residual value of that equipment. After 24 months an operator must not charge any compensation for the appliance anymore.
