What would you like to do?
Generally speaking you cannot back out of a car deal after the bill of sale has been signed. Some car dealers will allow you to, but this is seen as a contract once it is signed.

Answer Not legally. The auto dealer may agree to cancel the contract, but they are under no obligation to do so. Once you sign a contract, you enter into a leg…ally binding agreement. There is no 3-day cancellation clause or anything else that can get you out of it.
If after a contract has been signed and agreed upon for buying a home can the seller back out of the deal?
Answer . Yes they can if it is done in accordance with the terms of the contract. If it is done in breach of the contract, the seller can actually have legal action taking …against them.. Answer . Not always. Unless the buyer agrees, the contract remains enforceable, and a court can order the sale to proceed.
bill of sale A bill of sale is a legal document made by a 'seller' to a purchaser, reporting that on a specific date, at a specific locality, and for a particular sum of mo…ney or other "value received", the seller sold to the purchaser a specific item of personal, or parcel of real, property of which he had lawful possession. It may take the form of something like the following: For the sum of five hundred clams (C.500,-) I hereby convey to Joe Blow full ownership of a beige Acme whatchamahoozit, serial number DH500-1234567. (Signed) John Doe In some jurisdictions, sale of automobiles, firearms, or real estate require additional supporting documentation and reporting to transfer the title. You may use the bill of sale to sell vehicles such as cars, boats, motorcycles or almost anything that has an engine. Above retrieved from Answers.com Viper1
Certainly. The buyer can ask to be released from the sale by the seller and they can mutually agree to void the contract (sometimes with a token payment). If not mutual, the…n the buyer's only chance to back out is if there are conditions of the contract that are not met before the closing. For example, a contingency clause could be used to reserve the right of the buyer to back out if financing cannot be obtained, or if an inspection produces adverse results, or the seller does not meet some other specific condition. Also, the buyer can refuse to accept a defective title, such as where it has been discovered that the land is encumbered with liens, lawsuits, hazardous waste assessments, squatters, forged or missing documents in the chain of title, or the like, which cannot (or will not) be removed prior to the closing. Absent agreement or a legal excuse, a buyer who backs out could have to pay damages to the seller, as determined by a court.
Is a sale still valid if you forgot to sign the title when you sold your car but both parties signed a Bill of Sale and the buyer took the title and car?
Yes the sale is legal. However you had better get to the buyer and have the car transferred out of your name. You are still listed as the owner of the car. You are… still paying taxes on the car and may, in some states, be held liable for any damage done by this car in an accident or the commission of a crime. In the future never turn over the car until it is out of your name. Additional Information A bill of sale does not necessarily transfer ownership of a car legally. Especially when you have handed it over to a buyer without signing the Certificate of Title (and keeping a copy of both for your records). The buyer could toss the bill of sale in a drawer and continue to drive on your title. It is troubling that the buyer hasn't contacted you to sign the Certificate of Title. Transfer of ownership of motor vehicles is done through a Certificate of Title. Some states also require a bill of sale. If you didn't sign the Certificate of Title transferring title to the new owner then they can't register the car in their own name. The situation created a grey area of liability for you and left you exposed on many levels. As the seller you didn't fulfill your legal requirement in making the transfer and that makes you liable under consumer protection laws. The buyer could sue for a refund. Since you didn't sign over the title in a timely manner the title has remained in your name and you will be liable for any parking violations, toll violations, damages and trouble with the police if the car is used to commit a crime as mentioned above. You should contact the buyer immediately and rectify the situation. If that is not possible you should speak to someone at your DMV ASAP.
Potentially. Contact the seller and/or a lawyer to determine the law in your area.
A buyer always has three days to change their mind. This applies to buying a home, car, or anything else. That is not correct and applies to sales of vacuum cleaners, sewing m…achines etc. in your home. Most states allow a 3 day contract cancellation on these items if there is a cancellation clause in the contract. All other contracts are not able to be canceled unless by mutual agreement. Check with your attorney---this is what they get paid for.
Most states allow for a 72 lower grace period after the signing of any contract. A bill of sale is considered a contract.
Depending on which state you live in, you may be required to use a state approved bill of sale form. The state approved bill of sale forms typically require information such a…s: the seller's and buyer's name and address; the car's vin number, make, model, body type & year; odometer reading; and sale price. Some of these state approved bill of sale forms also require the seller's and buyer's signatures be notarized. Other states have moved this information to the title for you to complete when you sell the car and no longer require a state approved bill of sale form.
Depending on where you live you usually have 1-week to possibly 30-days check quickly what your laws are. It should state in fine print on your paperwork how long you ha…ve to back out. In some cases it may only be 3-days. Don't wait too long to fined out or you will be stuck.

If you signed all the papers but did not make the down payment, can you back out of the car deal? No, once you sign the paper you are locked in. If you back out you will tak…e a credit hit.
If there is no bill of sale and you agree to pay a price for a car and the person signs over the title and you find out its worth less do you have to pay the full amount can they take back the car?
Sounds like a messy situation. If you verbally agreed to a sale price, there is no paperwork to support it. How did the person sign the title over without getting paid f…or the car? Looks like you got a car for free.
When the governor refuses to sign a bill and sends it back to the general assembly the bill has been?
A bill that the governor (for a state bill) or president (for a US Congressional bill) refuses to sign is said to be VETOED.

It depends. Have you put a deposit down and signed an agreement? Usually, though, until cash has been exchanged and the title is signed over, you are not committed. But, to de…pend on a technicality would be far fetched. Better to just bring it up with the seller.
