Cordesville, SC asked in Contracts and Civil Litigation for South Carolina

Q: Can a third party monitoring service change the daily and bi-weekly rate at each scheduled appointment?

When enrolled in the program my partner was given a daily fee of $7.55 or $52.85 weekly or $105.70 bi-weekly. And he's in a program that is for Greenville and Spartanburg county residents only. But he's a Berkeley county resident. He's now paying up to $200 bi-weekly. They do not give any explanation as to this fee increase. He has a signed contract with Sentinel for the $7.55 daily fee that was signed on 10/20/2023.

A: This would be dependent upon the actual agreement or contract he signed. Some contracts allow for variations in pricing due to market conditions, etc. Some do not. So it just depends what he signed and agreed to at the time of initiation of the relationship. He may also have a cancellation provision that allows him to cancel if the price increases, but of course he would have to initiate that.
