Will I be liable for hire charges

You are legally responsible for the hire charges, but we will claim them on your behalf from the fault party. If we are not able to recover the hire charges from the fault party, provided you have complied with the terms of the rental agreement (which includes co-operating with us throughout your claim), the hire charges will be written off. This means that the hire charges are what lawyers call a "contingent liability" - or, in simple terms, on a "no win, no fee basis”. On condition that you comply with the rental agreement, your liability is limited to the charges recovered from the fault party.
