  • Garages?????

    Hi all,
    I am in the process of buying a property for rental.This property comes with 2 garages which are not directly next to the property.My intention is to rent the garages seperately from the house,I am just wondering if there is any correct way to do this,for example with tenancy agreements and if tenants of a garage have the same rights as of a dwelling.
    Many thanks in advance.

    You can rent the garages separately under common law tenancies and will reflect the wording you put in them. It can be a fairly simple document with core terms, but make sure you indicate a fixed term, and how you will end any agreement with the tenant. You should include the rent, how often it needs to be paid, and possibly the timing of any rent increases - the usual stuff. You might want to include an O/S map with the garage indicated on it for the sake of identification.

    As a garage is not a "dwelling" and incapable of supporting accommodation it is not subject to the usual rules.
    The advice I give should not be construed as a definitive answer, and is without prejudice or liability. You are advised to consult a specialist solicitor or other person of equal legal standing.

      Thanks paul for the reply.
      Is it quite easy to remove a tenant from a garage once they take possesion,is there any set rules on this?

        When the tenancy ends, it ends, no need to serve any notice. If the tenant then fails to move out you issue a Notice to Quit and the tenant then must move within 28 days otherwise you have to go to court. He still has to pay "mesne profits" - the equivalent of rent - if he should overstay his welcome.

          I've lost track of the number of times I've seen on this forum posts like this. Why would you consider going into business with someone who you dont trust due to previous issues? Walk away.

          I've just posted something on GDPR and then wondered whether it had been discussed on here before - a quick search implies its never been mentioned.

          I thought I would raise a topic to discuss it and the implications on landlords.In effect this is a replacement of the Data Protection Act...

          The ones I have mentioned all explicitly state that they are compliant with Privacy Shield.

          I mean, as said and repeated, if you are a cloud data provider in the EU and a minimum serious then your service complies with EU law...

          The only popular (used by real people routinely) cloud supplier who claims compliance is Microsoft for Office 365 storage (since 2014).
          None of the other suppliers, as far as I can find out, claim to be compliant - although it's fudged on most of their "help" pages.

          A data storage strategy is important because digital storage media are inherently unreliable and all file formats and physical storage media will ultimately become obsolete.

          Read my comments again... Thank you for your contribution to the thread.



          Privacy Shield has only been mentioned in relation to compliance with current rules.




          As said, I'm sure providers will update their operations to comply with the GDPR,...

          I feel that GDPR is being misunderstood here (which is common).

          Privacy Shield is one tick box (of many) towards GDPR compliance. It allows the "transfer" of data outside of the EU jurisdiction.

          However, it doesnt (for example) address the needs for the Data Controller...

          It currently allows to send data to the US legally. As said, if your provider either keeps the data in the EU or complies with Privacy Shield then there is no problem.

          I have no doubt that storage providers will adapt to the GDPR so as to continue doing business legally in the EU. Landlords...

          I was responding to this point.

          And said


          Many landlords store data on their phones, laptops and PCs.
          They don't have a data strategy in place, they just have documents and files that hold personal data.
          Those are often connected to a cloud service automatically...
