    Lease car return

    Lease car return 10th Mar 17 at 4:25 PM
    Hi


    I have a bit of a strange question. My lease car was due back today, I have just rang to find out where they are and apparently they have forgotten about me! I have had my new car delivered today but now need to find room for an extra car! The problem is there is no room for an extra car. We have a drive for 2 cars and all the near by roads are permit parking only! The company have 'kindly' told me I can drive the car with no further charges until they re arrange collection, but had no suggestions when I told them I have no where to actually park the car. I am tempted to park it in a 24 hour car park and send them the bill + a bill for the inconvenience of looking after their car!. Would I be within my rights to do this? I don't like the idea of parking it on a side street somewhere as it's the kind of car that is likely to be targeted by thieves!


    Thanks

    Monumentally unlikely that they will be liable for costs arising from a delayed collection. What do the Ts & Cs of your contract with them say about the situation?

    The reasons for the delay in collection are irrelevant. You are still responsible for the car until it's handed over. I presume it's still insured, btw?
