It could depend on the type of contract and in which state. In California, if you sign a home improvement contract, (room addition, kitchen remodel, etc.) you have 3 BUSINESS DAYS to cancel IF you signed the contract in your home. If you signed it in the contractors office you cannot cancel by law. It also depends on who you are dealing with. If all you lose is your deposit, consider it a lesson learned. Otherwise, see an attorney.

Well it does depend on the contract you are signing to be safe always ask your Recission rights signing any contract but as for Timeshares in California you have seven days from the moment you sign!

New Hampshire does have a buyer's remorse law. However, many people misinterpret these laws to think that they can cancel a contract simply because they change their mind. This is not the case. These laws do allow you to cancel a health club, or time share agreement within a certain number of days, it does not allow you to cancel a contract to buy a car or a home.

If contracts are signed and exchanged then the contract law of your country/state applies and you will not be able to cancel.

You have 3 days to cancel but only if it was a door to door sale, a health club, credit service center, self defence school, or weight loss center. Cancellation within 10 days is allowed for a timeshare or vacation club.

Yes, but a health club contract is defined as having a term greater than 3 months. A 3 month contract or less does not give you the right to cancel.

As with any contract, you have three (3) business days to cancel the agreement.

Yes, the dealer can cancel the contract but it is within 10 days of the date on the purchase contract.

Under the Virginia buyers remorse laws, consumers have 3 days to cancel a health club contract. This law does not apply to any other type of contract.

In most state you have three days to cancel a contract. The fact that it is custom made might be different though. There should be some wording in your sales contract concerning cancellations and penalties. The cancelation period only applies if the salesman initiated the sale by knocking on your door or approaching you. If you sought out the furniture salesman or maker and signed a contract then there may be no cancellation period unless it is written into the contract. Deal with reputable furniture makers and consider carefully before you sign a contract. Contract law can vary from state to state and there is no general rule where you can say that you have 3 days to cancel the contract. In some states, there might be a specific law that applies to a specific type of contract. You need to read the terms of the agreement you signed and see an attorney in your state if you have any questions.

On the purchase of a vehicle you cannot cancel the contract as the Cooling Off Period or Buyers Remorse law does not apply to the purchase of a vehicle. You signed the contract and are legally bound to honor it.

please visitwww.IllinoisAttorneyGeneral.govNo Three-Day Right to CancelDealers are not required by law to give car buyers a three-day right to cancel.The right to return the car in a few days for a refund exists only if financing is not approved. However, some dealers may, by contract, offer a right to cancel.If you're not in Illinois, you might want to check with the Attorney General's office in your state?Al BrownChicago

It depends on where you are. In some U.S. states, state law allows a purchaser a few days or a week to change his or her mind. This is generally called a "cooling off period." In others (TN is one of these), the moment you sign the contract, you are obligated and the only way to get out of the contract is to get the dealer to agree to cancel it, which is very unlikely.

None. Once you sign the contract you cannot cancel it. The Buyers Remorse law does not apply to the purchase or lease of a vehicle. Read the contract and see if there is a loophole you can use to canel the lease. Somthing like the car is not exactly as described or the seller changed the details without you knowledege, etc.

None. There are a select few ways to get out of your contract. You have to roam off network over 75% of use. If your company changes its fees such as administrative fees you have 30 days to cancel without penalty, if you express that is your reason.

You should be able to. It depends on the laws in your state. I am in CA and there is a 3 day return policy/cancel a contract law. Call the dealership and the loan company. Do it now before you go too many more days with the car.

To cancel a law if may be NULLIFIED or REPEALED.

NRS 119A.410 Right to cancel contract of sale.1. The purchaser of a time share may cancel, by written notice, the contract of sale until midnight of the fifth calendar day following the date of execution of the contract. The contract of sale must include a statement of this right.2. The right of cancellation may not be waived. Any attempt by the developer to obtain a waiver results in a contract which is voidable by the purchaser.3. The notice of cancellation may be delivered personally to the developer or sent by certified mail, return receipt requested, to the business address of the developer.4. The developer shall, within 15 days after receipt of the notice of cancellation, return all payments made by the purchaser.(Added to NRS by 1983, 982; A 1985, 1141; 1987, 894; 2003, 984; 2007, 1549)If it is within the rescission period, you can cancel the timeshare contract. Typically, it ranges from 3 days to 2 weeks.Almost all states adopt this law of rescission period. Also called cooling-off period. Although this varies from state to state, it usually ranges from 3 days to 2 weeks.

There is no federal or state law allowing you to cancel you contract. The 3-day cancellation clause is largely misunderstood. You can, in some specific instances, cancel a contract withing 3 days, but not a car lease or sale. It's assumed that you were of clear and decisive mind before you signed the contract. So essentially, that car is yours.

10 days after Landlord's request therefore provided that the then existing law

In the state of Texas, there is a law that allows anyone a 3 day grace period to return a large purchase , such as a car or home within the 3 day time frame if you have changed your mind. And I do believe that law is nationwide.

The rescission law or buyers remorse law does not apply to the purchase of a new or used vehicle. You would have to prove fraud in order to cancel the contract.

Repeal is to take back, or to cancel, a law

No you cannot. The Buyer's Remorse law does not apply to the purchase of a vehicle.
