Consumers' Right to Cancel Door-to-door Sales Contracts
Authored By: South Carolina Bar Association
Lawline FAQ: A consumer's right to cancel certain contracts is referred to as his "right to rescind" that contract. When consumers are in their own, or someone else's home they cannot walk away from a salesperson as they would in a retail store, and they are often persuaded to make a purchase by a skillful salesperson. For that reason, there are both state and federal laws which allow consumers to cancel credit sales contracts entered into in such situations.
