Resolved Question:

I live in Georgia.
I signed a job invoice today to have some upholstery work done. This happened at the upholstery show. No specific date was for this work was scheduled, as I needed to shop for material. The salesman who is the owner only signed with his first name "Carlos" where the form says "order taken by". I foolishly did not realize I was signing a contract. Can I cancel this order? What is your best advise?

Thank you for the post, I am happy to assist you by answering your questions. Unfortunately there is not an automatic ability to cancel without penalty, you should however be able to negotiate a resolution with the merchant as the merchant has not yet incurred substantial expense in preparing to perform per the contract, as such the damages for your cancellation are minimal.

The amount agreed to for this work is $570.00, what would be a reasonable offer to the merchant for cancelling this agreement? At most I was at his shop for 15 minutes.
Expert:  MShore Law replied 5 years ago.
A reasonable sum would be 10% of the contract price.
