Ask Your Own Australia Law Question

To legally loan a vehicle there are two ways this can occur; there can be an implied agreement, thats is without writing, or a formal agreement which is written. Where you are loaning a vehicle for a commercial purpose, a written contract should be in place to protect both parties. You should also ensure that the insurance on the vehicle also covers third parties under an implied loan and commercial basis.

If you need any further information please let know.

The law will, protect you in this matter.

You can come back to this post any time to ask questions and there will be no further charges to you.

Don’t forget to rate me 5 stars as this supports me helping the community, and thank you for using Just Answer.
