§ 5-33.1-6. Cancellation of contract.

Any person who has entered into a funeral service contract with a funeral service establishment, upon written notice to the establishment and to the escrow agent may cancel any funeral service contract prior to the performance by the establishment. In the event of a cancellation, all money in the escrow account paid by this person, together with all accrued income, shall be returned within fifteen (15) days after the cancellation. The funeral service establishment may retain an amount equal to the costs actually and reasonably incurred in the performance of the contract; this amount shall not exceed two and one-half percent (2.5%) of the amount in the escrow account on the date the purchaser cancels the contract, or two hundred dollars ($200) whichever is greater.
