How can I get the car back?
What penalties will Enterprise rental charge for me allowing Someone not register and under the age of*****the vehicle. Can Enterprise pressed charges against me, the renter?
Customer reply replied 4 months ago
Sorry for the typos.
Normally will be released on paying impound fees. You will want to contact them to determine amount usually $500-750.If needed, martindale.com and findlaw.com are both excellent lookup directories. Both highly rated. Both used by lawyers. Easy to search and find local options.If you have a follow up, just reply and ask me!Please let me know if the reply is acceptable by responding “yes” or “acceptable”

Could you provide a more detailed answer specific to South Carolina laws please? Also, can Enterprise charge or fine me for allowing someone else to drive the Car? Should I call enterprise immediately like the Free feedback stated?
Customer reply replied 4 months ago
I read something about getting a power of attorney to get the car back myself. Van you elaborate?
Customer reply replied 4 months ago
Can
Poa not required only if you cannot deal with it. Local counsel can also speak to them. martindale.com and findlaw.com are both excellent lookup directories. Both highly rated. Both used by lawyers. Easy to search and find local options.Lease governs penalties and here impound fees should be only fee.Please let me know if the reply is acceptable by responding “yes” or “acceptable”

The rental contract says nothing about fees. It only says no additional drivers are authorized to drive the vehicle. Again, what penalties/charges can Enterprise charge me for breaking this part of the contract. Please be very specific.
I don’t work for them and I see no basis for fees not disclosed and included in the terms and conditions. You can inquire with them of course as well. Good luck!

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.
