Damage to borrowed property


If I borrow someone's property for a specified purpose, and I use that property for a different purpose and it becomes damaged in the course of that other activity, then I am liable.

For example: If I borrow a car for a drive on an interstate highway, and then I decide to use it to drive on city streets, I am liable for any harm which occurs during the drive.

(Code of Jewish Law Choshen Mishpat 340:1)

Have a great day,
