We bought a "buy to let flat" near Aldgate east, London. The flat has 900+ years of lease. We have now rented the flat without the parking. I came across a site which lets me rent the parking space separately. We are now thinking of renting the parking space. I wanted to ask if renting the flat and parking space separately would be ok as regards to the lease? I will ask the lease owner but just wanted to understand how this is done normally.
Thanks in advance.
I often wonder about this sort of think and your view is right
But the question is how would anyone know the Landlord was renting the parking space in a separate deal
Its all about enforcement How would they enforce the rules if it came to it
Just look at the number of cyclists who brake the law day in day out and the Police just dont bother enforcement because they haven't
got the time

It depends on a number of factors -
Are there enough car parking spaces
Other leaseholders seeing non residents park and walk off
How aggressive the freeholder is for other income streams from leaseholders
If it is a breach of the lease - and the lease should be checked for this - then the freeholder could issue a Section 146 - notice of forfeiture and request compensation.
The enforcement is by the freeholder or management company.
Thanks for your thoughts and comments
my own view is just do it
and see what happens if they catch on and they enforce the rules deal with it then
as long as there getting there service charge and ground rent I think 99% would not go after you
as a side issue a person dumped there car on one of my parking spaces I contacted the Landlord for there help
and the reply I got was the Parking space is yours so you deal with it
which I did with the help of the police
No registered keeper loads of Data Protection rules from the Police so how a Landlord would ever enforce the rules of the block is beyond me Knowing one thing and proving one thing is a different matter
The problem is How will the Landlord prove to a court that the car is not owned by the Leaseholder
Getting info from the DVLA is not easy as I found out when a car was dumped on my parking space
The Council dont want to know the Police cant give you info
Enforcing a rule is the hard part on private property
and you cant clamp them either
Ok lets set this out
Ok I ring you as the Landlord and says some one has parked there car on my parking space
and I want it moved
How would you go about getting the car removed
How do you as the Landlord find out who owns the Car ?and if you cant find out who owns the car
what do you do next?
