Check the service agreement (if any) that has been entered into with the lease. If the maintenance company does not comply with the minimum service-level agreements, you have the option to fight the company because it does not work. Since very few photocopier dealers use their own leases, most of the contracts that have been broken due to poor service are only service contracts and not copy contracts. So choose carefully and carefully what your business needs are now and what they will be 60 months later. As far as photocopiers are concerned, we advise our customers every day in this way. At the beginning of your mission to exit a copy lease, you should carefully check your rental terms. Check termination penalties and applicable termination clauses if you wish to terminate your contract prematurely. A photocopier lease is a legally binding contract between a leasing company and a company. The leasing company allows the company to use a photocopier for a longer period, usually one to three years.
In return, the company makes regular payments to the leasing company. The company has the option to buy at the end of the leasing period. And the list goes on and on. If any of the above scenarios sounds familiar, it may be time to break the rental. In some cases, it is possible to legally violate a copy lease agreement, while minimizing financial risk, as discussed in the next section. Some rentals contain clauses that require written notice if you do not wish to renew a lease. This is also called the “Evergreen clause” and you may need to give between 30 and 180 days in advance. If these deadlines are not met, the result may be an automatic extension of the lease, which makes withdrawal considerably more difficult. Read the conditions for automatic renewal of your copy rental and meet all the requirements necessary to prevent them.
The entity may, for several reasons, want to break its copy contract, including changing needs, financial difficulties, outdated technology, poor performance or misrepresentation by the leasing company. Paying a separate service contract from your photocopier could be a better financial step, as a lessor may be required for you to keep the lease. Copy leasing companies are interested in one thing, and that is to “guarantee” your money for their services. A good way to see that this is the case is to check for a “personal guarantee” signed in your contract. If you have signed one, you cannot sometimes terminate your lease. A personal guarantee is one that binds you to the lease conditions, and if your business goes bankrupt or goes bankrupt, your personal and commercial balance is affected. The departure of a lease if no guarantee has been signed and, as with all signed debts, should be the ultimate and last resort. The main issue in this article is how to terminate the copy contract with the leasing company, not the copy contract with the distributor.
The challenge here is that you could be stuck with a minimum payment if you break the contract because you have additional leasing payments to pay. Remember, the leasing company wants its money for the equipment. A lease of $200 a month could become hundreds of people if the service is put in the same basket and you still have to pay rent.
