Do residential leases have a right of rescission?

After signing a lease, a tenant changed his mind and exercised his 72 hour right of rescission to terminate the lease. The problem–there is no right of rescission for residential leases under California law.

California does establish a right of rescission for several categories of consumer purchases, often relating to those transactions occurring at the home, such as a contract to install a pool. However, once the rental agreement is signed it is then binding on both parties without a right to terminate without cause.
