Thank you for your question. Please permit me to assist you with your concerns.
If I may ask, how exactly did you give your notice? Was it in writing, email, phone? Please advise.
Did you get confirmation of acceptance? Also, did the contract state that notice by email is sufficient?
Did you sign anything like that from what you remember, or no?
There is no law that simply permits you (or anyone for that matter) to simply cancel a contract, unless there is a specific law for a specific type of contract that permits early termination, or if the contract is somehow illegal or void. But if you signed a contract, that signature is binding. There is no taking back a signature once given, unless the other party chooses to agree and void the terms. But in general if you signed a renewal, you cannot change your mind even 2 minutes later unless the contract itself has language that allows you to change your mind. And if there is a small window, that is controlling, and the courts likewise uphold such conditions.
