Misconception by consumers:
THERE IS NO 3
DAY COOLING OFF PERIOD
FOR MOST CONTRACTS!
There are exceptions:
supplier makes first contact with you at your home;
entertainment contracts (health clubs, dating services, dance lessons);
law may require certain mortgagees to permit 3 days to change your.
mind. f you visit a showroom (for a vehicle, a hot tub, or furniture) if
you bought it!
SHOULD I READ
THE CONTRACT BEFORE SIGNING?
Well, yes, of course. In reality, no terms
will be changed if you don't like them. Most contracts are:
it or leave it" deals as to price and most everything else
standard forms so as not to permit true negotiation
In small print
legal mumbo jumbo
too long to read anyway
The truth is that you will not understand
everything that you read even if you do read it. Still, you will feel foolish
if you later discover something you did not realize was in there. So, at
least read the numbers and figures that are filled in all blanks, and read
what is right next to them, right above them, and right below them, too.
In addition to your legal duty to read,
as a consumer, you also have: The right to read... And
you cannot read unless you have the
opportunityto read. So:
salesperson going too fast? Slow him or her down.
need to feel dumb.
salesperson covering up part of the contract as he or she
to where to sign?
what each document is for before you sign.
- Read very carefully that which is directly above or below the blank where
you are to sign. Make sure that you sign in a co-signer capacity. If the
salesperson says that it does not matter, he or she is very incorrect.
