Real Estate Lawyer: Ray, Lawyer replied 10 months ago

Yes you can terminate here.

Most Florida Real Estate Contracts for Resale properties allow Buyers to cancel a Contract within 3 days after it has been signed by the Buyer and Seller and cancellation within this time period is typically without penalty/without loss of Deposit (this period of time is known as a 3-day Right of Recission), however, ...Apr 15, 2011

How to cancel a Property Purchase - South Florida Real Estate Blog

If you gave written notice within two days your contract should allow for cancellation and a full refund of your money.

I appreciate the chance to help you today and wish you the best.

Thanks again and thanks for rating 5 stars at top of page.

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.
