What are the rules for renting a parking space (garage, box...)?

Verified 03 May 2022 - Legal and Administrative Information Directorate (Prime Minister)

The rules for renting a parking space (box, garage or parking space) are different depending on whether it is linked to a residential lease or a separate rental.

Rental related to a residential lease

When the parking space is to be rented in addition to the accommodation, it is not necessary to provide for a specific lease.

The parking space must be mentioned in the residential lease as an annexe (or accessory) to the accommodation.

The rental of the parking space must comply with the rules of the residential lease (for example, the duration and end of the lease, the revision of the rent, the sublease).

This applies whether the accommodation is rented empty or furnished.

In the event of a dispute, it is the judge who decides whether or not there is a link between the rental of the accommodation and the rental of the parking space.

The competent judge shall protection litigation judge the courthouse on which the parking space depends.

Separate rental

When the parking space is to be rented independently of the tenant's accommodation, the rules of the rental (for example, the amount of rent, the duration of the rental...) can be freely negotiated.

To avoid conflicts, it is recommended to sign a written contract, but a verbal lease is possible.

The written contract shall include the following:

  • Amount of rent and date of payment
  • Rent Review Rules
  • Lease duration
  • Modes termination of lease (mail, notice period...)

In the event of a dispute, it is the judge who decides whether or not there is a link between the rental of the accommodation and the rental of the parking space.

The competent judge shall protection litigation judge the courthouse on which the parking space depends.
