The Texas State Law Library reference librarians created legal research guides for specific areas of the law. The library's guide on cancellation of consumer contracts provides links to relevant Texas statutes, federal laws, and agency regulations on the right to cancel certain consumer contracts or return purchases, as well as resources written in “plain English.” We highlight useful articles and other digital resources that you can view from home such as:
- The 3-Day Right to Cancel a Purchase
Texas Attorney General's brochure explaining when the 3 day right to cancel applies.
- People's Lawyer Q&A — "Store refuses to give refund for gift"
Richard Alderman, a Texas attorney, answers a question related to a store refusing to issue a refund.
- Protections for In-Home Purchases: The Cooling-Off Rule
This information from the Federal Trade Commission discusses the right to cancel door to door purchases.
