Fair Wear and Tear Guidance For Your New Car
As a condition of the lease, your leased vehicle will need to be returned / collected back to the leasing company in a condition that reflects fair wear and tear when the lease ends.
In order to avoid unexpected charges, each leasing company produces a fair wear and tear guide to ensure you understand what is considered acceptable and unacceptable damage and deterioration during the life of the lease. The guide to fair wear and tear covers tyres, glass, body work, interior and mechanical.
For clarify, fair wear and tear doesn’t include damage impact, scratched alloy wheels, damaged trim and general harsh treatment of your vehicle.
The BVRLA also produces a guide about fair wear and tear and is similar in content to that produced by the individual lease companies and offers an industry standard booklet that has proved very useful in our experience.
However, please note that each individual leasing company produces their own “fair wear and tear guide. Again, we recommend you read this as there may be some slight variations to the leasing company’s own fair wear and tear guide and that produced by the BVRLA
