The laws vary in different states and it can depend on the reason why you want to cancel. It is important that you check the rules in your particular state. Also, its not easy. For example, some states have Lemon Laws that cover the purchase of a car with unreasonable and costly repairs. You need to act within the statutory warranty period (or the short warranty period offered by the seller) which in most cases is only thirty days. You need to document the problems and have proof that you gave the dealer the opportunity to repair them and they failed. You may need to sue in court.

For terminating a contract you need to first review the contract looking for an explanation of your right to terminate. For car sales in many jurisdictions there is no statutory right to cancel the contract. Some dealerships have a no questions asked policy for a short period of time after the sale but you must make certain you have that in writing. One local dealership offers a 48 hour full refund period if you change your mind.

Can you terminate your apartment lease due to no heat?

You need to check the contract you signed before you moved in. It will list all the obligations imposed on your landlord and this usually includes making sure you have hot water, heating etc. Even if the contract does not mention this - in UK law this obligation is usually implied by statute. However, just because he is liable to ensure you have this facility will not mean you can immediately terminate your lease if, say, your boiler breaks down. Obligations imposed on you by the contract will probably include immediately informing the landlord of any problems with utilities such as these and therefore allowing him the opportunity to fix it for you. If, however, you have repeatedly told him you have no heating and he has repeatedly ignored you then you may have a good case for terminating your lease. But you have to tell him about the problem first and give him the chance to remedy it.

The merchant has no liability. The purchaser/debtor may have problems discharging such a recent purchase debt, unless it was for necessities (food, clothing, shelter, medical care) and may be denied a discharge for all debts if this is a pattern with other creditors as well.
