Approximately three years ago I...
Approximately three years ago I joined Total Solutions, a fitness club. I signed a contract to pay $80 a month until my membership expired. They did not tell me that there was a clause that indicated that they would continue charging this fee after the contract ended. I thought that they would notify me when it was up, but they didn’t. I found out that my contact ended in March 2017 and I have been on this monthly billing. What are my rights to get any or all of this money back. I was just charged two days ago this fee. Am I legally able to get them to refund this amount?

H​ello. Let me see if I can assist. Give me a moment to review and type my reply.

Ask Your Own Legal Question

If the contract contains a provision that the contract goes month to month after expiration and the contract does not require them to provide notice, there is not much you can do legally. However, you can dispute the charges on your credit card. You can also post a bad rating on social media, including yelp. Hopefully, they will respond to the bad posting and work with you.

Have I answered all your questions?
If so, please be sure to accept my response and post a positive 5-star rating.

Anne was extremely helpful. Her information put me in the right direction for action that kept me legal, possible saving me a ton of money in the future. Thank you again, Anne!!

ElaineAtlanta, GA

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.

TonyApopka, FL

Not only did he answer my Michigan divorce question but was also able to help me out with it, too. I have since won my legal case on this matter and thank you so much for it.
