Hi, 

 

i cancelled mt xcerxise4less direct debit in March as I had gotten a new job so started going to a gym close to work. 

 

The contract was a one month rolling contract but despite this I apparently had to give 30 days notice to cancel. 

 

They have continued to uphold my contract, adding each months membership of 10.99 onto “outstanding arrears”. 

 

They have Also added on their costs and fees and the outstanding is now £177.00. They are now threatening legal action. 

 

I sent Harlands a letter in June offering to pay one months fee and nothing more but they ignored this and have now passed it onto CRS who are threatening court proceedings. 

 

I would like to avoid the hassle of court proceedings (although I do work for a defendant solicitors) so any help would be much appreciated. 

 

Thanks in advance.

The claim was eventually withdrawn so it didn’t actually go to court but proceedings were issued.

Hi JPD and welcome to CAG,

 

There are 100's of threads here about Harlands and not one includes them taking court action in recent years.

 

Use a draft letter from here to offer to pay the 1 month's fee you should have paid for the notice period. There are plenty around like here - https://www.consumeractiongroup.co.uk/topic/417942-xercise4less-crs-debt/?do=findComment&comment=5006931

 

 

Keep us posted .......

Hi Slick, 

 

You seem like the CRS expert reading previous threads (lol). I have drafted the letter back in June which they have ignored. 

 

I am ignoring them for now, should I continue to ignore their demands until they take more serious action ?

 

thanks
