I signed an estimate for a kitchen at a fair, do I have a cooling-off period?
In principle, no. This is very clearly indicated in this article of the consumer code. Everything you sign at a fair or in a trade show does not entitle you to any withdrawal period. It is supposed to be well mentioned in these places (if this is not the case, the professional is liable to a fine).
The National Consumer Institute explains the only condition that allows you to retract: if you have taken out an assigned credit (so not with your bank, but on the same stand, at the fair or show). There, you have 14 days to cancel your credit, which will therefore automatically drop the sale.
Olivier Gayraud, of the CLCV, warns: “At fairs, you have to be careful to sign an estimate that is as precise as possible. I recently had the case of a client who had signed for cupboards. At the time of installation, the professional explained to him that he had only paid for two signs, the customer preferred five…” Be careful, therefore, to agree well before signing. Also remember to mention the footage: if you do not know the precise dimensions, comment on the price can it evaluate then? This should be discussed with the professional.
