On the first point, yes I have the same problem and I believe they can charge for leaving.
On the 2nd point if you have informed them you don't want to renew then you shouldn't have to! I'm 99% certain that this is correct.
Solution: Hmm I would try changing your financial information or make sure you keep in contact with them and be as plain talking as possible.
Who is the host? I'm interested to see if it's the same as mine.
Also I would post your question on a dedicated web hosting forum as the answers maybe more advanced.

I hope you can help me please. I have a little problem. I am currently very unhappy about my current host and wish to leave them. I only have a month or two left but i wish to go now.
The problem i have is this...
The company have written back to me and told me this:
quote "If you registered your primary domain through ***** and you are going to keep this domain after cancellation, you will be charged a fee". I believe this is $26 dollars
Question 1: is this correct or is this just a ploy to get more money from the client?
They told me "Note that if you do not transfer your domain, you will be billed for that domain?s registration on its anniversary date, regardless of whether you have a ****** hosting account or not."
This is the point that most concerns me. I am willing to leave them and leave the domain and re-register another name because the site is only a fan-site, so not really important. This comment about charging me on the anniversary seems like black mail. Is this scare-mongering?
It seems that whatever i choose to do will cost money one way or the other. This doesn't seem a common issue as i haven't found this mentioned on the internet.
Can someone tell me where i stand... legally or otherwise
