Ask a Lawyerwhat's this?

Question

Country: United States of America
State: Michigan

I have a 3year membership with Bally's gym ,I fell behind with my payments; they turn me over to a collection agency and I agreed to let them take the money out of my bank account. I am caught up with the past due amount, but I still can't used the gym until the full three years are paid off which will be in April of 06 .them for a fifty dollar renewal fee I can use what time I have left on my contract. is this legal?

Answer

Once you are current you should be able to use the gym--Based on what you say here, you could probably file suit against them (or at least threaten to do so) in small claims court or in regular court; filing in small claims court is easier and requires no attorney...you could try to collect all of the costs and damages that you suffered due to their behavior...
