Legal Topics: Three-Day Rule for Purchases
Statutes: (Additional statutes, regulations & opinions may apply to your specific situation.)
Minnesota Statutes §§325G.06 to 325G.11 contain a three-business-day cooling-off period that applies to home
solicitation sales. Definitions can be found in §325G.06 and the right to
cancel is in §325G.07.
Minnesota Statutes index topic Sales.
The Office of the Minnesota Attorney General Consumer Protection Division takes complaints on a variety of consumer concerns. Their Car Laws page contains the following language: "Did you know that there is no three day "cooling-off" law when you buy a car? Once you sign the contract, the car is yours. You can't return the vehicle if you decide that you don't want it or can't afford it."
DISCLAIMER: As librarians and not lawyers, we can suggest
resources but cannot give legal advice (such as which form to file), or legal
opinions, (such as how a statute might apply to particular facts.) To
do so could be considered the unauthorized practice of law. Even though
we try to suggest materials that will be of help, further research is usually
required to find a complete and correct answer. For many questions, the
best answer may be to consult an attorney. For links to resources on
