Singh -v- Yaqubi (2013) EWCA Civ 23
The Court of Appeal emphasized that very large claims for credit hire - in this case £2,000 per day for a Rolls Royce should be carefully scrutinised. In particular in a business claim such as this, there should be specific evidence of need. In this case, the business partnership had six other prestigious cars at its disposal. The £92,953.90 claim for credit hire was dismissed.
Similarly in Opoku v Tintas  All ER (D) 81 (Jul) the Court of Appeal considered whether a motorist had acted reasonably in running up a £40,000 credit hire bill , when it was clear from an early stage that his car could have been repaired for £3,000. The Court agreed with the trial judge that eight months was a reasonable time frame to have the car repaired, and disallowed the credit hire after that period.
