Hello. My name is Alex.
Thank you for your question.
I will be happy to provide you with information you are seeking for educational purposes only.

What type of contract did you sign?

Does the contract contain a 3 day cancellation option?

Expert:  Alex J. Esq. replied 9 months ago.

Thank you for your follow up.

Generally, unless specified otherwise, the day on which the contract was signed doesn't count toward the 3 days, so generally, if the contract was signed on Monday then Thursday would be the last day to cancel if the contract has 3 day cancellation option.

It is important to make the cancellation request in writing, so it can be documented that the cancellation request was made within 3 day period.

I wish you the best of luck!

do i need to notify anyone else or just mail in paperwork?
