3 day right to cancell for home improvement contract

Asked over 1 year ago - Fountain Valley, CA

I signed a home improvement contract last saturday (3/09/13) the contract gives a notice explaining the right to 3 day cancellation and I initialed it but then the contract also states that the 3 day right to cancell shall not apply if this contract is negotiated at the contractor's business location. I would like to cancell today which is the 1st day of the 3 day right but contractor says that i cannot cacell because i signed it in the place of business. IS it true? Does it mean i cannot go out of the contract anymore? Thanks a lot

    Answered . You need to have your contract reviewed by an atty. Without seeing it, no one can actually opine. I've attached a link to contracts you have a statutory right to cancel and their time frames. Hope this helps.

    Answered . My colleague's right. Generally the act proving for a consumer's right to cancel within 3 days doesn't apply if the contract is entered into at the home improver's premises, but it depends how much the contract is for, whether you initiated the negotiations, etc.
