In general, consumers should be very careful when signing on the dotted line. But there are some legal options available if you need to cancel a contract.
For those times when either life or your mind changes, here are five tips for getting out of a contract:
- Send a letter requesting to cancel the contract. Business owners need goodwill in order to grow their businesses, so it doesn't hurt to ask them in writing to cancel a contract for a small fee -- or possibly even for free. Oftentimes, it's cheaper for the company to let you off the hook than to sue you for breach of contract.
