This is Samuel and I will discuss this and provide you information in this regard.

If you notify them within 3 days of the signing of the contract, you can cancel the contract. You should read your documents, and it should state this. However, I suggest that you contact them today and tell them you are cancelling. You are not comfortable with the agreement and you then should write them a letter to this regard and state that you are cancelling the contract with in the 3 days as allowed by Florida law.

But read your documents and see what it says about cancellation. And after you talk to them, mail the letter overnight so they get it within the 3 days.

In Florida, if you contract for services to be rendered in the future on a continuing basis, you are entitled to a three day cooling-off period.

Expert:  Sam replied 1 year ago.

A sale for future services can be cancelled by the buyer by notifying the seller within three business days from the date the buyer signs the contract. There is no requirement that the notice be made in writing. However, it is a better practice for the buyer to send written notice to the seller by certified mail.
