Hi there, i was wondering if anyone would be able to give me advice on the following problem i have.


I took out my car through Fortis Lease Ltd and have recently just payed off 50% of my contract. I contacted them to voluntary terminate my loan which was fine, they told me to deliver the car to an auction house in glasgow which i done today. They then done the standard checking over the car for any problems, and came back to me with a bill of £1300 for repairs. There was no problems mechanically, it was all visual. However my problem is that they have quoted me £275 and £175 for two scratches which were on the passenger door and the passenger back quarter panel, which were already there when i bought the car? Also, the biggest shock which was a small chip about 5mm wide which has started rusting that is on the A Piller, which they are charging me £450 for? They are also charging me 3 x £55 as there are scuffs and scrapes on three of the alloys which were already there when i bought the car too.


When i bought this car it had one owner so i obviously expected scrapes and scratches on the car, which i wasnt too bothered about. How can they account me for these when they wernt my fault? I have no proof it wasnt me but surely they dont either? On top of that they are charging me over £400 on labour aswell, and all this is excluding VAT so no doubt it would be reaching £1500.


Would anyone have any advice for me? It would be greatly appreciated.
