I hired and paid a lawn fertilizing company in 2006 for fertilizing service in Michigan. I sold my house in March 2007, but the same company continued fertilizing service in April, 2007 without my authorization. The fertilizing company named me requesting payment (aeration and 3 fertilizing =$198). I refused the payment because I did not request their service continued in 2007. They said I was liable because I did not cancel the service. Are they right. After speaking to others on the web, I found the answer. If in the contract you signed with the company, it says that you agree to continue services until you provide them a notice of cancellation, then yeah — they’re right, you owe them. . . If, however, it says nothing about continuation of services or a need to cancel, then . . . You’re free. Check the contract — it’ll be your saving grace.
