Cancellation of a contract. Under the federal Truth in Lending Act, a person who signs a contract can nullify it within three business days of having signed it without penalty; funds paid into the contract by the signer must be returned. Also, fraud or misrepresentation provides legal grounds for cancellation of a contract. For example, life insurance contracts with minors are voidable (by minors but not by insurers) since they are under legal age for making a contract.
