§ 827-9. Duty of Buyer; No Compensation for Services Prior to Cancellation  


Latest version.
  • (a) Except as provided by the provisions on retention of goods by the buyer (subsection (c) of Section 827-7), within a reasonable time after a home solicitation sale has been cancelled or an offer to purchase revoked, the buyer upon demand must tender to the seller any goods delivered by the seller pursuant to the sale but buyer is not obligated to tender at any place other than buyer's residence. If the seller fails to demand possession of goods within a reasonable time after cancellation or revocation, the goods become the property of the buyer without obligation to pay for them. For the purpose of this section, 20 days is presumed to be a reasonable time.

    (b) The buyer has a duty to take reasonable care of the goods in buyer's possession before cancellation or revocation and for a reasonable time thereafter, during which time the goods are otherwise at the seller's risk.

    (c) If the seller has performed any services pursuant to a home solicitation sale prior to its cancellation, the seller is entitled to no compensation except the cancellation fee provided in this part.
