(815 ILCS 635/5)
(from Ch. 29, par. 905)
(1) Right of Rescission: A purchaser or
a Membership Camping Operator has an unconditional right to rescind any
Membership Camping Contract, or revoke any offer, at any time prior to or
within 3 business days after the date the purchaser actually receives a
legible copy of the binding contract. "Business day" means any calendar
day except Sunday or Federal holiday. Predating of a document does not
affect the time in which the right to rescind may be exercised.
(2) Notice. Each membership camping contract or disclosure document
shall contain the following notice: "Either the purchaser or the Membership
Camping Operator is entitled to rescind this agreement for any reason
within 3 calendar days (excluding Sundays and national holidays) from the
day the purchaser actually receives a legible copy of this document signed
by all parties. The rescission, which must be made in writing, shall be
delivered by certified mail or delivered in person. The purchaser shall
return the contract, certificate of membership, and any membership cards,
ID, or materials to the Membership Camping Operator upon said notice in the
same condition in which it was received or pay the cost of replacing the material".
Following the date of the rescission notice, the Membership
Camping Operator shall, within 10 days, begin processing the refund of any
money paid by the purchaser so that the purchaser will receive a refund no
more than 21 days after the date of the rescission notice. Upon
rescission the purchaser shall immediately return the
contract, certificate of membership, and any membership cards, ID, or other
materials to the Membership Camping Operator in the same condition in which
it was received or pay the cost of replacing the material.
(3) Effective Date: Rescission occurs when the purchaser or the
Membership Camping Operator gives written notice of rescission or when
rescission is made in person.
