Hi,

 

I resigned from a Gym before Covid and they were forced to close.

I had to give 3 months notice.

 

The first month was fine as they were still open.

The last 2 they closed and as a consequence didn't take any money.

However I couldn't use the Gym.

 

I had an email (Pre Covid) confirming my end date.

 

they now say that my cancellation was halted during covid and I have to pay for the 2 months since they opened.

 

is that right?

Thanks

Which Gym is this?

 

Have you a copy of the contract you signed or agreed to?

Who ever heard of someone getting a job at the Jobcentre? The unemployed are sent there as penance for their sins, not to help them find work!

DCA's view debtors as suckers, marks and mugs

NO DCA has ANY legal powers whatsoever on ANY debt no matter what it's Type

and they

are NOT and can NEVER  be BAILIFFS. even if a debt has been to court..

If everyone stopped blindly paying DCA's Tomorrow, their industry would collapse overnight...

Good old Roko, they always like to get one over on their ''customers''...

 

Have you, due to Coronavirus, been made redundant? If so then you can cancel also.

 

Either way, they're pretty irrelevant as Roko can do nothing except attempt to intimidate you by threatening powerless DCA's.

Thankfully no. However my company struggled and I cancelled (knowing that it took 3 months) on the off chance.

 

My concern is I will get negative marks against my financial status if I don't pay

gyms do not do court

gym debts do not show upon credit files.

As DX says, there is NOTHING they can do, and they will certainly NOT be able to touch your credit file.

 

Ignore them now, just file their missives, Roko usually disappear quite quick when they realise their empty threats are scaring anyone.

Hi PP and welcome to CAG

 

We've been here many years now and we've not seen Roko, David Lloyd or Bannatyne gyms take any action to enforce their requirement for 3 months notice to cancel.

 

Just ignore, make no replies to demands but keep us posted.

We could do with some help from you
