What is the name of your state? Colorado
I recently purchased a microwave from an appliance outlet. It didn't fit over my range so I returned it. On the contract that I signed, it stated at the bottom that "restocking fees may apply" Since it was after my signature, I never saw it and the company rep never stated that there were restocking fees.
I have some questions on contract law out of this.
1. Since the contract that I signed did not have specific terms, does this allow the company to do whatever it wants?
2. Legally, where does the company have to place their policy for returns to be enforceable?
3. I heard that anything beyond the signature is not part of the contract. Since the part about the restocking fees wasn't within this area, I never saw it. Is it part of the contract if there weren't any other reference to terms and conditions within the contract?
I understand that restocking fees are becoming a fact of life since they need to pay for people returning merchandise in a similar manner to what I did, I just want to understand more how it works if it isn't disclosed.
