There are garages for rent on a number of estates in the Borough.

Apply to rent a garage

If you wish to rent a garage, please complete the garage application form:

South Tyneside Council - Apply for a garage

Once you have completed the application form, you will be put on the waiting list.

We will let you know when a garage becomes available.

As demand sometimes exceeds supply we maintain a waiting list based on date of application.

Your wait will depend on the area you want and how many other people are waiting.

Pay your garage rent

You can pay your garage rent online:

Who can apply to rent a garage

Anyone can apply to rent a garage from us.

We run a waiting list and give preference to those who have waited the longest.

Restrictions on garage use

Garages are for personal private use only and must not be used for business purposes.

They are intended for the storage of a motor vehicle and should not be used for the storage of any other goods.

You should not store petrol or any other inflammable materials in your garage.

You should not sublet your garage to anyone else.

End your garage tenancy

We need one week's notice in advance if you want to give up your garage.

When you hand back the keys to us, the garage should be empty and swept through.

There will be a charge if we have to clear it for you.
