Many laws exist for individuals that are pressured into purchasing a product at home as a result of home solicitation. The main reason is to help protect homeowners that are solicited to and are granted a cooling off period of up to three days to back out of their purchase and have their money returned with no questions asked. The right to cancel does not necessarily apply to everything that you purchase. However these protections can help to garner a period of time to reflect upon impulse purchases. If you do not wish to receive any solicitation, the following collection of signs for your home can be used to discourage door knocking salespeople.
