Ahh - ANOTHER ambulance chasing roofer case, and I would bet the contract included a full assignment of rights and maybe even a power of attorney.


You would have to google about Indiana homeowner contract laws - and maybe contact your state or local consumer fraud division (usually part of district / county attorney's office).


Generally, most states allow voiding (using specific written cancellation procedure) within 3 days of signing a contract done at your house. There is also a federal 3 day law with similar provisions.


If there was no price or period of service stated in the agreement it would not be a valid contract anyway - but convincing them of that might be tough.


Exactly what your situation is depends on the terms of the contract of course - but if within the 3 day business or calendar days in different jurisdictions) limit I would use that to bail out. If in doubt, see an attorney ASAP.
