LEGAL MYTH OF THE WEEK. Week Two: Canceling California Contracts

Posted on July 31, 2014 at 6:40 PM

Myth – If I buy a car but change my mind, I can take it back the next day.

Truth – Most contracts in California are final once they’ve been signed by both parties, particularly if you’ve received something of value (like a car).

There are particular contracts in California that have a cancellation period, such as Credit Repair Services, Dating Services, Funeral contracts, Door to door sales contracts, Internet sales when the order hasn’t been filled yet, service contracts, and weight-loss services. Note that these are generally contracts where no product or service has been provided yet. This is an incomplete list. For more information see the California Department of Consumer Affairs
