“Door-to-door sale” defined.

“Door-to-door sale” means any sale, purchase, lease or rental of any consumer goods or services with a purchase price of $25 or more which is the result of any door-to-door solicitation or personal solicitation by the seller or his or her representative, whether at the specific invitation of the buyer or not, and which is made at a place other than the place of business of the seller. The term “door-to-door sale” does not include a transaction:

In which the buyer has initiated the contact and specifically requested the seller to visit his or her home for the purpose of repairing or performing maintenance upon the buyer’s personal property. If in the course of the visit, the seller sells the buyer the right to receive additional services and goods other than replacement parts necessarily used in performing the maintenance or in making the repairs, the sale of those additional goods or services would not fall within this exclusion.
