If you have entered into an instalment sale contract, i.e. a financing agreement, you have a very short deadline by which to change your mind. The law grants you 2 days. The page titled Modifying or Cancelling a Contract provides you with all the information on this subject.

The Office recommends that you make a well thought-out decision before signing a contract. After these 2 days, you may not go back on your decision, unless:

  • your contract includes a high annual credit rate of more than 22%;
  • you come to an agreement with the merchant;
  • you obtain a court judgment in your favour.
