Damage to a borrowed van from tree sap


I borrowed someone’s van to move my things to a new apartment. While doing so, I parked underneath a tree. It started to rain hard while I was inside my new apartment and apparently tree sap got all over the van.

The owner of the van told me that it cost $149 to get all the tree sap off of the van. Am I obligated to pay the owner of the van for the cost of cleaning the tree sap. ?


It is understood that questions of this nature cannot really be answered fully without hearing both sides of the story. However using only the information that you wrote, it appears that we have a “shoel”, that borrowed something and there was an “ones”, which a shoel has to pay.
