What Happens If Your Leased Car Is Damaged?
If you have a lease car, then you’ll know that it’s a great way to save on motoring costs. However, when your lease period ends, and you return the car there can be extra charges if there is damage. If your leased car is damaged, its cheaper to pay to have it repaired than paying the penalty.
What to do if your leased car is damaged?
When you lease a car, you should return it in almost the same condition as you received it. There is allowance for “normal” wear and tear, but each leasing company will have its own criteria. This will say whether the damage is serious enough to attract an extra cost. Usually, the leasing company will contact you a few months before the lease ends to inspect the car. They have a checklist and tell you if they have found anything that needs to be repaired. You will get a copy of the report and they’ll tell you how much they will charge you if its not repaired. You decide whether to pay for repairs or whether to return the car as it is and pay the penalty. This penalty payment applies whether or not the company choose to actually repair the car.
