Coast & Country garages

Looking for a garage?

We have over 1,000 garages throughout the Redcar and Cleveland Borough. There is no limit to the amount of garages you can rent, and they can be used to store both vehicles and personal goods.

How do I apply for a garage?

To apply for one of our garages fill in our form and someone will get back to you. Alternatively you can email enquiries@cchousing.org.ukor call us on 01642 771300.

What happens after I apply?

Your name will be placed on the waiting list if there are no garages available at your desired location. If we have garages available close by then you will be offered one of these.

Once a garage becomes available and you reach the top of the list, you will receive a letter or phone call offering you the tenancy. If you don't wish to take the garage or we do not hear from you within seven days from the date of the offer, the offer will be withdrawn and the garage offered to the next person on the list. There is no penalty for refusing the garage and you are free to re-apply at any time.

If you decide to accept the offer you will need to call into one of our offices and sign two copies of a garage tenancy agreement. The tenancy will then start from the following Monday.

Paying rent

Rent needs to be paid weekly in advance every Monday. If you do not pay your rent we have the right to end the tenancy and change the locks on the garage. You will be billed for this plus any costs to clear the garage of its contents.

Please note: We will not rent a garage to anyone who has an outstanding debt with us.

What you need to do

You must keep the garage in a clean and proper condition. You will also be held responsible for the cost of any repairs other than those caused by fair wear and tear. You must inform us of any repairs needed due to wear and tear so we can repair them accordingly.

Please note that you store items at your own risk and should consider appropriate insurance to provide effective cover. 

You must not:

  • Carry out any trade or business in or from the garage
  • Sub-let or part with possession of the garage
  • Make any additions or structural alternations in or to the garage
  • Park in a way to obstruct access to other garages.

What we will do

We will maintain the garage in good repair with the exception of wilful or accidental damage or repairs caused by the tenants failure to take proper care of the garage. To report garage repairs call 01642 771300. 

We reserve the right to inspect the garage on giving reasonable notice. In exercising this right, employees of Coast & Country or any other person will cause as little damage as possible and where damage does occur, it will be fixed.

No longer need your garage?

If you want to end the tenancy we will need at least one weeks' notice from you. This can be done by calling 01642 771300, in person at any of our housing offices or by emailing enquiries@cchousing.org.uk 

The garage must be left in a clean and tidy condition. There will be a charge if we have to remove property/rubbish before the garage can be re-let.
