325G.07 Buyer's right to cancel
In addition to any other rights the buyer may have, the buyer has the
right to cancel a home solicitation sale until midnight of the third
business day after the day on which the home solicitation sale occurs.
Cancellation is evidenced by the buyer giving written notice of cancellation
to the seller at the address stated in the agreement or offer to purchase.
Notice of cancellation, if given by mail, is effective upon deposit in a
mailbox, properly addressed to the seller and postage prepaid. Notice of
cancellation need not take a particular form and is sufficient if it
indicates, by any form of written expression, the intention of the buyer not
to be bound by the home solicitation sale.
