H​ello. Let me see if I can assist. Generally contracts do allow you to back out of a contract if you have an attorney review period. That period allows you or your attorney to review the contract and if the terms are unfavorable to you (or your attorney), you can cancel the contract.

If you are familiar with real estate contracts, you can conduct the review yourself.

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.
