How much notice do I need to give?
7 days’ notice needs to be given in writing. Notice will begin from the Monday following receipt of your letter.
What if I am in arrears?
After 14 days of being in arrears the council can terminate the licence and recover possession of the bike shed, garage or parking space.
Does the council insure the contents of the garage?
No. The council is not required to carry out any insurance to cover content. The garages are only suitable for storing motor vehicles. They should not be used to store any personal items. The council will not be responsible for any damage to items and it is the tenant’s responsibility to insure.
Can I use the bike shed, garage or parking space for business?
No. Tenants must not conduct business or store items used for business within the bike shed, garage or parking space.
Can I add extra locks?
No additions or alterations should be made to the garage internally or externally. This also includes painting.
How can I get a replacement key?
We do not hold spare keys for garages.
Tenants are allowed to have spare keys cut as we change locks at the end of each tenancy. If all keys are lost then there is a £50 charge for a replacement lock.
How can I pay for the bike shed, garage or parking space?
Rent can only be paid by Direct Debit.
What do I do if I move house?
If you move house then please contact us as soon as possible so that we may update your contact details.
