12 month gym contract
My son took out a 12 month contract with a local gym but after 2 months he was made redundant, he is only 18 and wrote to the gym giving one months notice and made sure this was paid. He has since gone back to college and has no income. They have sent two letters to him since, the first asking for documents which he cannot possibly provide ie. utility bills in his name, mortgage statements etc plus a £25 cancellation fee and one more months payment. (he only used the gym twice !) failing to provide the docs means he will have to pay in full. The second letter has given him until 18 Nov to make the full payment of £250 or the debt will be passed to a debt recovery company. Is this just scaremongering or can they do this? Is the contract legally binding as he has received no goods or services?
