Went to YouFit (fitness center) to join on a month to month basis. Fees associated with joining, monthly fees (1st & last) were paid. Discussion of future monthly fees (after 12 months) were discussed.
Acknowledgement of the above were initialed on a signature pad. No discussion of or allusion to a life time contract was given or shown.
Upon paying for membership, I received receipt & contract. Within contract is a cancellation clause that was not discussed with the associated fees.
This has been within less than a 24 hour period without use of facilty. Can this contract be broken?
No one can answer this question without review of the contract terms. If those contract terms provided in writing that it was a permanent membership with termination fees, those may be binding.
Speak with a local attorney to review the contract.
This answer is for informational purposes only and is not legal advice regarding your question and does not establish an attorney-client relationship.
The facts above seem to indicate that you paid upfront before either given the contract to review OR that you relied on statements made verbally but signed something completely different? Is this correct? If there was misrepresentation, you may relay on the 3rd rule of rescission of contract. This rule applies to specific types of transactions and I suggest you contact an Attorney who deals with Unfair Trade Practices in Florida and speak to him/her.
