Hello and thank you for the question.
reviewing your question now
The "Cooling Off Period" applies only to certain contracts, such as personal service contracts (gym memberships or health club memberships etc.), or services that are sold "door to door". There is also a 15 day cooling off period for cell phone contracts. Other than those exceptions, there is no "cooling off" or cancellation period for contracts if you change your mind.
You may however cancel where the contract itself has a cancellation policy
and you also have a common law right to cancel where contractor has misled you or breached the terms.
Let me know if that is clear.
Clear -- we have to accept the contract as is - "buyer beware!
subject to those exceptions
Thanks - you verified what i suspected. Thanks for your clarification.
kindly click on an excellent rating for the answer
Have a nice day
Hope your day is going better than mine. So long
I wish you best of luck and consider if any of the exceptions apply or if you want to try to negotiate
sometimes the dealer will lie, or have a cancellation clause
and you would have leverage there
not wanting a dept of consumer affairs complaint or a BBB complaint, contractor may be willing to settle
Wishing you the best and a better rest of the week
