Garages

We have garages in the district which you can rent.

The Garage Management Policy outlines our approach to the letting and management of garages.

Here we explain how you can:

  • Apply for a garage.
  • Pay your garage rent.
  • Request a garage repair.
  • End your garage lease.

Currently there are no garages available to rent.

To end your garage licence you must give one weeks notice.

If you would like to stop using your garage and hand it back to us, please can you:

  • Complete and submit the Ending your garage licence form
  • Remove all items from the garage and leave it in a clean condition so it can be easily rented again. If we need to clear any unwanted items we will charge you for the cost of removing and disposing of your waste.
  • Put your keys into an envelope with the garage address on it and hand them into Customer Services at the Council Offices in Oxted.

Should we need to clear any unwanted items the cost will be recharged to the vacating tenant. 

Any lost keys are subject to £149.73 which will be recharged to your garage account. If you have lost your keys, you should advise us, we can then arrange a gain entry and lock change to be carried out in the garage.

Payments

We will cancel your direct debit from the date your keys are returned to us. However, we would advise you to cancel your direct debit/standing order with your bank in case your next payment is due for collection.

 Any credit on your account will be refunded back to you within 28 days.

If you can't pay your garage rent, please contact us on 01883 722000.

We have a duty to recover all rent owed to us and are required to maintain overall levels of outstanding rent.

If we have to repossess your garage, we will ask the licensee to remove the contents.

Should we have to clear the garage; the arrears, cost of clearance, and the cost of a lock change (if required) will be charged to the former licensee.
