Buyer's Remorse - Can I Get Out of the Contract I Just Signed?  

Article by Lisa M. Hammel, Esq.

Williams & Williams PSC        


In most cases, once you sign a contract, you are stuck with the terms of the agreement you entered into. Therefore, it is always a good idea to take your time and read thoroughly through all of the terms of the contract before signing it. This is especially true if you find yourself in a "high pressure sales environment." If a salesperson is pressuring you to sign a contract without giving you the chance to read and think about it, it is probably a good idea to walk away.
