Contracts in Singapore

Post by makale » Wed, 01 Sep 2010 6:01 pm

Hey any legal eagles,
If i sign a contract and it does not stipulate a "cooling off " period, is there, under Singapore law, an unwritten understanding that there is a "30 day cooling off" period.

Although there was nothing in writing, I guess legally it was a contract when I bought my fridge. It is cooling off nicely for a few years now.

(In non-sarcasm this translates to "You'd better ask a clear question if you want to get a useful answer!")

The concept of a cooling off period is new in Singapore. I don't think everything has an unwritten period built into it. Only certain things have been made to be required to have this, e.g., Time Sharing scams, etc.

No.
It's common sense - if you try to come in before I go out, I can't go out. And you can't come in! Lose-lose!
