I have a reason for asking this question and after you have answered I will give you the reason way I asked It Essex
Learn Change and Adapt ?????

I have been through this for real and what should be done is very different for what can be done
You just cant get info on who owns a car and if you haven't got that your snookered
all a Tenant has to say is I dont know who owns the car ???
If you put an abandoned notice on it its useless all the car has to do is move for a few hours and then it comes back
and then you have to start all over again
The loopholes are huge and they could run a Landlord round in rings
my own view is let sleeping dog lie
This topic is like every thing in property
we have all had arrears and we all know how hard it can be to get possession
Shelter are past masters on advising Tenants what to do to stop a Landlord getting possession
personal I try to stay away from leagle situation unless I have to and have no other option
Huge differences in what could be done and what would be done
You are 100% right any savvy landlords could get past this type of issue
Its not as easy to enforce as other believe it is
other than sitting watching the car for days on end its hard to prove who owns a car
I would also point out that few use a garage for a car these days. When we rented out one garage (still rent out another) it has generally been for storage on the understanding the renter is liable for any damage etc. One was local business that stored shoes in the garage as they'd been paying three times the rate for storage that was three times more distant. We advertised at one rate and got so much interest we got the rate and a half. The other was a local charity that stored toys that they changed over periodically. We got given some pallets to raise the boxes off the floor but that was about it for adaptations. We checked on how often they'd be visiting, etc. For the business we said no deliveries to the garage and they were fine with that as they were not at the garage anyway, they'd get deliveries to their shop and then shuttle the stock in their car to the garage. Their insurer had a requirement for three locks and we just added two padlocks to the side of the garage door, simples.
On a side note garages do come up for sale in my area periodically and they seem to make a great return, storage is so expensive these days.
