Garages for rent

For both tenants and non-tenants the charge to rent a garage is £15 per week. Payment for garage rent is four weeks in advance by direct debit.

How to apply

Complete the online Garage application form.

If a garage is available we will make you an offer, or add your name to a waiting list if there are no vacancies.

You will need to provide us with photo ID, proof of your national insurance number, a completed direct debit form, and pay the first month's rent in advance before we give you the keys.

If you owe any outstanding housing debts to Runnymede Borough Council, or have a poor payment history if you have let a garage from us before, we will not accept your application for a garage.

Signing up for your garage licence

If you decide to accept the offer of a vacant garage you will need to attend the Civic Centre in person to sign a licence agreement.  You will also need to pay one month's rent in advance plus set up a direct debit for ongoing payments.  If you fail to maintain payment by direct debit the licence provisions allow us to end the agreement by giving the licensee seven days' notice.
