2. COVENANT TO HIRE

2.1 The Lessor shall let and the Lessee shall take on lease, the Vehicles upon the terms and conditions set out in this Agreement.

3. PERIOD AND APPROPRIATION

3.1 The Vehicles will be supplied by the Lessor to the Lessee for a period and contract mileage as detailed in the Vehicle Schedules to the Master Hire Agreement, excess mileage will be charged for any miles in excess of that contracted. If any Vehicle is retained by the Lessee beyond the period contracted the Lessor will charge Rentals at twice the daily rate in respect of the Vehicle in question from the end of the contracted period until such time as the Vehicle is returned in accordance with the provisions of this Agreement, see Schedule 2.

3.2 Vehicles will be provided in accordance with the Lessee’s instructions and Leasing Programme.

Rentals will commence upon delivery; should such delivery be delayed beyond a reasonable period by the Lessee, then the Lessor reserves the right to commence charging rentals immediately. The Lessor will not be held responsible for any delayed delivery whatsoever and all vehicle availability is subject to Manufacturer supply constraints.

4. RENTALS AND PAYMENT

4.1 The Lessee will pay each Rental monthly in advance. The Rental payments will be made on the Payment Date. Rental payments will stop on the return by the Lessee of the Vehicle in accordance with the provisions of schedule 2.

4.2 All Rentals due by the Lessee will be made to the Lessor by way of standing order into the bank account of the Lessor (or any subsequent bank account the Lessor may notify to the Lessee in due course). Should the payment not be honoured, for whatever reason, an administration fee not exceeding £100 plus VAT may be charged, unless otherwise agreed. All account payments shall be paid in cleared sterling by electronic transfer for value on the due date for payment in full without any deductions or withholdings whatsoever (unless required by law) and free from any rights of set off or counterclaim, together with VAT where appropriate.

4.3 Should the Lessee fail to make any payments of Rental or any other sum payable to the Lessor hereunder upon the due date for payment thereof the Lessee shall pay to the Lessor interest thereon or on so much thereof as shall from time to time remain outstanding at a rate of four per cent per annum above the Bank of England current base rate calculated on a day to day basis from the due date until the date of payment as well as after as before any judgement or the commencement of winding up. Please note: non-payment of rental funds due within a 48-hour window from the due date of payment requested may result in repossession with no refunds given.

4.4 If at any time and on a pro rata basis, the Lessor becomes aware that the total mileage covered by the vehicle, exceeds or is likely to exceed the contract mileage, by more than 20% the Lessor may \adjust the monthly payment to take account of the anticipated excess mileage charges that will accrue at the end of Agreement Period. The Lessor will inform the Lessee of the adjusted rentals in writing.

4.5 Lessors hereby represent that a certain subset of vehicles in the used car fleet ("used vehicles") may have previously sustained damage and have been Categorised, whether of a structural or cosmetic nature, potentially as a result of usage under a previous lease agreement. Such damage has been professionally remediated to ensure the vehicle's safe operation and road-worthiness. Each of the Subject Vehicles has undergone a comprehensive inspection by qualified technicians who have verified and certified their safety and operational integrity.

Cat S (formerly Cat C) The vehicle sustained structural damage but can be repaired and driven.

Cat N (formerly Cat D) The vehicle sustained cosmetic or very minor, repairable damage.

Subject to all applicable laws and regulations, Lessors further represent that the restoration procedures performed on these Used Vehicles meet or exceed industry standards, notwithstanding the existence of prior damage. Complete documentation outlining the nature of any such previous damage, as well as the remediation steps undertaken, is available upon request, consistent with Lessors' policy of full transparency.

It is expressly understood that this disclosure is made as part of Lessors' commitment to providing a diverse range of leasing options to Lessees, and ensuring their absolute confidence in the safety and performance of used vehicles we have available for lease.

5. PREPARATION AND DELIVERY OF VEHICLES

5.1 The Lessor shall arrange for the Vehicles to be prepared in accordance with the usual pre-delivery inspection standards (the ‘PDI’). The cost of this shall be borne by the Lessor or its agent provided that this work is carried out by the Lessor or its agent.

5.3 The Lessee or its agent shall inspect the Vehicles on delivery to check that they are in a satisfactory condition and in accordance with the ordered model. Any discrepancy or damage must be noted by the Lessee or its agent on its behalf at the time of delivery on the delivery documentation. Failure by the Lessee or its agent to do so will result in the Lessee being deemed to have accepted the Vehicles and conclusive proof that the Vehicles have been examined and found to be complete, in good working order, according to specification and in every way satisfactory to the Lessee for the purposes of this agreement. Whilst every endeavour will be made to ensure delivery of a specified colour, this cannot be guaranteed, and this will not be construed as a reason for cancellation of this agreement.

6. RISK

6.1 The Lessee shall bear the entire risk of loss, damage or destruction to the Vehicles from any cause whatsoever as from the date of delivery until such time as the Vehicles are returned to the Lessor or collected by the Lessor in accordance with the provisions of this Agreement.

7.1.4 Deliver to the Lessor within thirty days of the date hereof a copy of the insurance cover note, certificate, policy or acknowledgment showing that the interest of the Lessor or any person the Lessor may reasonably nominate has been noted on the said policy or policies.

7.1.5 Neither the loss nor the theft nor the destruction of nor the damage to the Vehicles nor any defect therein whether latent or patent shall affect the continuance of this Agreement or the Lessee’s liability for the payment of the Rental and all other sums due hereunder.

Vehicles to be inspected and collected shall be undamaged and in a generally reasonable condition with due allowance being made for fair wear and tear commensurate with the vehicle’s age and mileage and which the Lessor might reasonably expect during the use in business as aforesaid.

Upon de-fleet, an authorised representative of the Lessor will inspect the Vehicle.

A condition report will be compiled and will be as comprehensive as reasonably practicable.

Upon arrival of the Vehicle at the Lessors defleet centre, a further inspection will be carried out whereby an additional detailed condition report will be prepared along with any repair costs, which will be provided to the Lessee.

If the Lessee disputes the contents of the report, and recharge costs, they have one clear calendar business day to notify the Lessor of any dispute and to make arrangements with the Lessee to inspect the Vehicle. In the event of a dispute, the Lessor will hold the Vehicle of up to 5 working days for an inspection to be carried out by the Lessee.

If the Lessee fails to inspect the Vehicle within the aforementioned period, they will be deemed to accept the Lessors recharge costs.

Charges will be made by the Lessor for aborted vehicle inspections and collections.

These are defined as vehicles not available within 30 minutes of the Lessor's collection agent arriving on site, failure to give a minimum of 48-hours notice of a vehicle not being available, no keys & remotes, non-runner, threatening behaviour towards a collector, refusal to release the vehicle, no access to remove vehicle, or the vehicle being in an unroadworthy or unsafe condition (including essential warranty work).

It is the Lessee’s responsibility to ensure that all vehicles are safe and meet all aspects of the current legislation with regard to vehicles on the road in the UK.

Failure to meet any of the above will incur a charge of £150+VAT.

Where an abortive collection has occurred it is the Lessees responsibility to notify the Lessor of a new collection date, clause 9.0.3 applies. Rentals will continue and be payable until the vehicle is collected.

If, when a vehicle is returned, substantial repairs are required then the lessee shall remain liable for the rental payments until the vehicle is.
