Legal Question

Asked on: 10/19/13, 4:09 pm

My university issued me a laptop when I began college, and it came with an insurance. This was 4 years ago, and I no longer have the laptop. I just open a letter that was received at my parent's house about 6 months ago saying that the policy has been sold to a company called safeware and the policy will be renewed unless I cancel. I just opened the letter, and it's 2 months later than the date they said I must renew by. I do not live at my parent's house and have not since I began college. I haven't had the laptop in over a year. They want to change me nearly $1300 for this new policy, but the laptop originally cost $800. I am going to call the customer service and tell them this, and request they cancel the policy. It this legal for them to do? I know a company must give reasonable notice before renewing a contract, but given that I don't live at that address, and have not for years, is that reasonable notice? Also, dose the fact that the laptop no longer exist play a role? There's nothing for them to insure. Hopefully they won't fight with me on this, but if they do, what are my options?
