Re: never lend your housemate your car.

mm its hard to explain whats needid but to keep the damage in context
if you see the car now u will think ' oh is that all'
but as the damage cant be fixed the panels need to be replaced. its not like the car is full on mangelled.

just an expensive little ding.(sorta)

Not more bad news :sad: I just hope he is going to contribute to the repair costs. For all you know he might have hit a pole doing burnouts.

I thought he would have a duty of care when borrowing your car. Just because it was 'parked' when someone 'backed in to it', doesn't excuse him from liability. Try and do that with a rental.



good luck in sorting it out - it makes it harder when you all live under the same roof.
