Last updated: 17 April 2024


Residents have priority garage rental (tenants, leaseholders and shared-owners), but we will also consider non-residents. 

If you are interested in applying for one of our garage areas, you'll need to fill in the application form (below). If garages are not available in your chosen area, we'll add you to waiting list. However, areas with high demand and long waiting lists may be removed from options here until waiting lists reduce. 

We allocate garages on a first come first served basis. However, we give priority to our residents who have a Blue Badge. Once a garage becomes available, we will get in touch to confirm the pricing and to help with any questions you may have. 

You can use your garage to store a vehicle or your personal goods and furniture, but we ask that you don’t use it as a workshop. We do not allow you to store pets, people, commercial goods, perishable goods, illegal goods, un-taxed or un-roadworthy vehicles, flammable or explosive substances in the garage.

You may be responsible for repairs to your garage. Please check our Repairs Policy for a list of repairs you are responsible for. If we are responsible for a repair, you must let us know immediately.

If you currently rent a garage from us and wish to terminate this agreement then you can do this by clicking the button below.

By ending your agreement, you are agreeing to the following: 

  • You are confirming that you are giving us one full week’s notice to end the rental of your garage.
  • The termination date is always a Sunday. As we must have one clear week’s notice prior to termination of the agreement this means the time it takes for your agreement to end will differ depending on when you give notice. E.g. if you give notice on a Tuesday, the termination date will be the Sunday 12 days later
  • You will clear the garage of all goods and rubbish and return the keys to the area office on or before 12 noon on the Monday immediately following the end date.

  • You understand Southern Housing has the right to sell or otherwise dispose of any goods left in the garage after the termination date.
