No, they signed a contract, so can be held to that contract, sometimes the company will waive the amount but it all depends on the reason for stopping the contract, I've had both things happen, forced to pay the remaining contract and had it waived, it really depends on luck as to who you get to deal with, as SoS has shown, two different people, two totally different amounts, a third might either quote the original figure or even just void it with nothing owed.

Well, he could have meant 'delightful' I suppose...

But with the cobble-stones a-flying in Paris yesterday, & more national strikes planned, you have to admit, he's a master self-publicist.

Good news! I have a full-body CT scan on Tuesday, 9 months after my op. I know the primary has gone, via blood-tests, now just checking "for extras".
