Are you online with me?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
The form was signed by myself, the Buyer, but the Seller refused to sign because he did not feel the form was sufficient notice of cancellation.
Expert:  Loren replied 1 year ago.

Unless the contract specifies an alternate means to cancel, the release and cancellation would be a clear and unequivocal means of terminating the contract and communicating that intent.

If the seller refuses to accept it then you will need to sue him.
