are alarm contracts assignable
    Are your Old and new Contracts Transferable to a new Commercial Building owner?  If Yes where does it state it in the Contract?  If No how do we make it so in the Contract?  If we write a contract for monitoring and service with a building owner. The owner then sells the building to someone else is our monitoring and service contract transferrable?
    If the alarm contract is silent on the issue of assignment, it's assignable.  That means assignable by both you and the subscriber.  But the Standard Form Alarm Agreements [both old and updated] do address assignment.  The agreements provide that the subscriber is not permitted to assign the contract; the alarm company can assign the contract, and is relieved of responsibility upon the assignment, going forward.
    If your subscriber wants to assign the contract to a new occupant it's probably a good opportunity to require the new occupant to sign a new contract.  You can also update the system at that time.  If you want to permit an assignment make sure you get an Assumption Agreement from the new subscriber.  Incidently, unless the assignment you consent to relieves the original subscriber from further liability then that subscriber remains liable.  Typically the Assumption Agreement allows the out-going assignor to be released from the agreement once assumed by the new subscriber, the assignee.
