Fair Wear & Tear Guidelines

The definition of "Fair Wear and Tear" can often an area of dispute in leasing scenarios so the British Vehicle Rental and Leasing Association (BVRLA) publish clear guidelines as to what should be regarded as fair. It is unrealistic for lessors to expect back a fleet car in showroom condition, and hence the industry term of "fair wear and tear" - which sets an industry standard for the "reasonable" condition of the car for age and mileage at end of lease.
