Good Afternoon

Being a verbal agreement the issue is it is your word against the personal trainers.

Do you recall what the agreement was when you paid?

Was it agreed that if you decided to terminate early you would get a refund?

What was your understanding?

This is what you will have to be able to convince VCAT of if you decide to go down the path of taking the PT to court for the money.

I hope this makes sense and is of assistance. If you have found my answer to be helpful, please rate me five stars so I can get paid for my services to you. I am happy for you to ask further questions on anything you wish more detail on.

Regards

Leon

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.
