If you need somewhere to keep your car or van, you may be able to rent a garage near you. 

When we allocate garages, priority goes to council tenants and leaseholders living on the estate. If there is no tenant or leaseholder on the list, we will offer the vacancy to the next person on the list.

To rent a garage, simply put your name on our garage waiting list by filling in the garage waiting list online form now. Alternatively you can call Customer Services on 020 8489 5611 or email They will send you a form which you can fill in and post back to us.

When you sign the tenancy agreement for the garage, you will be asked to produce a valid vehicle registration number and proof of identity. You will also be asked to pay a month’s rent in advance and take out a Direct Debit to pay the rent in future.

Garage measurements

Most garages are designed for a standard car and measure 4.88m x 2.44m (16’x8’), but a few are larger, and can accommodate a van. Rents are based on size and facilities, such as internal lighting.

Points to consider

  • You can only rent a garage for a motor vehicle, not for other purposes such as storage 
  • You must not store materials that catch fire easily in a garage 
  • You cannot keep petrol or gas bottles in a garage.
