cancellation
A regulated consumer credit agreement maybe cancellable under the Consumer Credit Act 1974 where negotiation before the transaction took place face to face with the customer and the agreement is signed by the customer off trade premises. Special cancellation notices must be provided and the customer has a short period after the agreement has been signed (a "cooling off" period) of five days (or fourteen days where the goods are ordered by mail order) to change his mind and cancel the order.

cancellation
1. where a bill of exchange is intentionally cancelled and the cancellation is apparent thereon, the bill is discharged, as is any party liable on it. Intentional cancellation may be manifested by the cancellation of the signature. A cancellation made unintentionally or under a mistake or without the authority of the holder is inoperative.
2. at common law, an attempt to terminate a contract that can succeed only on terms agreed. A cancellation that is not agreed would result in an award of damages for breach of contract. See also anticipatory breach of contract. Under the law of consumer credit, a consumer credit agreement is cancellable if oral representations are made by the negotiator in the presence of the debtor or hirer and the agreement was not signed by the debtor on trade premises. Noncommercial agreements and certain small debtor-creditor supplier agreements are excluded. The protection allowed is for a five-day cooling-off period. Overlapping protection is given by the Consumer Protection (Cancellation of Contracts Concluded away from Business Premises) Regulations 1987. These apply to unsolicited visitors or a solicited visit where different goods are sold. They do not apply to land transactions, sale of food and drink for consumption, or insurance and investment contracts. The regulations offer a seven-day cooling-off period.

cancellation
n.
1 The act, or the marks or perforations made in the act, of canceling something.
2 A remedy by which a court calls in, annuls, and retains possession of a void or rescinded written legal document because it may cause unnecessary litigation or make a person's title to property unclear. For example, a court may call in, annul, and retain possession of a void deed to real estate that a party used to falsely claim title to someone else's real property, in order to prevent any such claims in the future.
