I am writing to you to discuss our government's latest initiative that will ban door to door sales and further protect consumers.
Effective today, March 1, 2018, door to door sales of certain household appliances will be banned to better protect consumers from aggressive and misleading contracts.
Businesses will only be able to enter into a contract in the consumer's home if the consumer has contacted the business ahead of time and invited them into their home for the purposes of entering into a contract. Contracts that are in violation of the new rules will be considered void and consumers will be able to keep the goods and services with no obligations.
The new rules will apply to:
1) Air Cleaners.
2) Air Conditioners.
3) Air Purifiers.
4) Duct Cleaning Services.
6) Water Filters.
7) Water Heaters.
8) Water Purifiers.
9) Water Softeners.
10) Water Treatment Devices.
11) Bundles of these goods and services.
In addition to this, businesses will be required to keep a record of how contact was made with the consumer entering into a contract and all contracts signed in the home for these goods and services will also have a 10 day cooling off period, allowing the consumer to cancel the contract for any reason without penalty.
Protecting consumers is part of our government's plan to ensure that we are creating a fairer society for everyone.
