Ask an Australia Law Question, Get an Answer ASAP!
Thank you for your question. To Introduce myself I am a sydney based Solicitor and will do my best to provide you with relevant information to assist you.
Please be patient with any delays. I am on my way to the UK and access is limited and time difference will also affect my responses.
I am trying to work out what you are after.
Are you the lender of the vehicle and want the person you are lending it to must comply with the insurer of the car?
Have you spoken to the insurer about this? They have standard clauses they rely on and also charge a higher excess for 3rd parties driving the car.
I would not suggest you deal with this on your own as you may be in breach of the policy.
Thanks for this reply
What we want is a small disclaimer for an individual to sign in the following scenario:
We have a personal vehicle that sometimes gets loaned to another person, we want them to sign a paper that says they are covered by their own insurer whilst driving it, or something like that.
Thanks for this, so can we ask an individual to sign that they are personally liable and leave insurers out of it entirely?
