So What Happens Next?

At the end of the Lease or PCP contract your vehicle is required to be returned back to the lease company and assessed to determine whether the vehicle meets the agreed returned condition and subject to “Fair Wear & Tear“.
Fair Wear & Tear” occurs when normal usage causes deterioration to a vehicle. It is not to be confused with damage which occurs as a result of a specific event or series of events such as impact, inappropriate stowing of items, harsh-treatment, negligent acts or omissions. **Source-BVRLA**

The “Fair Wear & Tear” clause will include all exterior paintwork, bumpers and trim, the condition of the interior, all glass and mirrors, tyres and wheels, and the mechanical condition of the vehice(at appraisal level).

Before your vehicle is due back to the leasing company consider the following:-

  • Understand the standard – You can request a copy of the BVRLA industry standard through your leasing company or check with your lease company. (You may have recieved this already)
  • Let us appraising your vehicle – This will identify any damage that does not constitute “Fair Wear & Tear” and requires repair.
  • Carry out the appraisal of the vehicle  approximatley 4 weeks before the vehicle is due for return. This will allow you to arrange to have any unacceptable wear and tear rectified.

What Should I Do Now?

  • If your car is due to be returned within 4 weeks of the return notification date, then you need to contact us and book your inspection.
  • If your car is NOT due to be returned and outside the recommeneded 4 week return notification date, then you need to contact us to diarise an appointment with us with your return date so we can notify you at the time.

“The vehicle should be sufficiently clean to allow a detailed inspection”
