Cancellation Rights for Types of Contracts Not Listed Above: Almost any consumer contract that you enter into at home (or anywhere other than the seller’s place of business) can be cancelled by sending a written notice of cancellation to the seller by midnight of the third business day after you signed the contract if the contract was for consumer goods costing $25 or more (Civil Code §§ 1689-1689.12). Consumer goods are goods that have been produced for the average person to use and are ready to be used—not just basic materials that have not been converted to their final form.
