What is a parking space rental agreement?

A parking space rental agreement can be used to rent out a parking space within private commercial property. This agreement is designed for use in Great Britain. Where the parking space is based in Scotland, a different agreement should be used.


Is it mandatory to have a parking space rental agreement?

What is a licence to occupy?

The formal legal term for this type of parking space agreement is a 'licence to occupy'. A licence is a contractual agreement that permits a person or legal entity to do something.

  • define the payment terms - this will explain how much money the relevant party must pay to use the space, and how frequently the payment must be made
  • define any particular rights and responsibilities of each party – this will include information about security and safety
  • include a notice period – this will explain how much notice each party must provide to bring the agreement to an end.

  • check whether they need permission from their mortgage lender (if applicable)
