How to Cancel a Contract

Some home improvement or repair contracts may be canceled without penalty or obligation by midnight of the third day after signing. These contracts may include:

  • Agreements resulting from door-to-door sales solicitation.
  • Agreements that will be paid on an installment basis for more than 90 days.
  • Agreements signed anywhere other than the seller's normal place of business, unless you have requested specific goods or services or emergency home repairs.
