Can I cancel a contract for a roofing job within 3 days in Oregon?

Lawyer's Assistant: Have you contacted the manufacturer?

It is an aquaintance that we have the contract with

Lawyer's Assistant: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?

We cancelled our contract with someone that was going to do our roof in Oregon within 3 days. He said he was getting a lawyer and we were responsible for the days he blocked out to do the work and for not breaking the contract. On the contract we had put that he needed to show proof of insurance which he did not have insurance for doing a roof. I told him I would look into our insurance and see if it covered him.

Can I cancel a contract for a roofing job within 3 days in Oregon?

Response: Yes, if the contract was signed at your home. Otherwise, you only have till the end of the next business day to cancel the contract. See Oregon Revised Statutes Chapter 701 Section 701.310. Nonetheless, if the contractor is required to be insured but he does not have coverage, then you can cancel the contract because the contractor has not fulfilled his part of the agreement.

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.
