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.

How many hours by law do you have to cancel an order for custom furniture?

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.

Can you cancel an auto lease contract?

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.

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.
