Instructions and Checklist
Garage Lease Agreement

   The Tenant and Landlord should review the Lease carefully.

   The Tenant must sign the Lease.

   The Landlord must sign the Lease.

   All pages need to be initialed where indicated by both the Landlord and Tenant.

   Generally both the Landlord and the Tenant will each want an original, signed copy of the Lease. Therefore, if there is one Landlord and one Tenant, two original Leases should be executed (i.e. signed).

   These forms contain the basic terms and language that should be included in similar agreements. The laws in some states require additional provisions.  Check with a real estate agent or attorney in your area to determine whether additional provisions, if any, are required in your state or locality.  

   Laws vary from time to time and from state to state. These forms are not intended and are not a substitute for legal advice. These forms should only be a starting point for you and should not be used or signed before first consulting with an attorney to ensure that it addresses your particular situation. An attorney should be consulted before negotiating any document with another party.

General Information
Garage Lease Agreement

In densely populated areas, parking can be a nightmare.  As an alternative to nightly searches for street parking, some people choose to rent a garage or other parking space.  They are not renting the adjoining apartment or house, rather they are only renting the garage or parking space to park their car or store other items.  

A Garage Lease Agreement is an agreement between the garage owner (the Landlord) and another person (the Tenant) for the lease of a garage or parking space.   A Garage Lease Agreement works very similarly to a house or apartment leasethe Tenant will pay a monthly rent for the space, there may be a security deposit, and the lease will generally run for a fixed length of time.  

Most states have different laws relating to leases, mainly designed to protect tenants from dishonest landlords.   In addition, states have different laws regarding the amount and the handling of security deposits.  Landlords and Tenants should be familiar with the laws of their state.

GARAGE LEASE AGREEMENT


This Lease Agreement (“Lease”) is entered by and between _____________________________ (“Landlord”) and _____________________________________ (“Tenant”) on ____________, 20__. Landlord and Tenant may collectively be referred to as the “Parties.

The Parties agree as follows:

LEASE TERM: The lease will start on _____________ (begin date) and will end on ___________ (end date) (Lease Term).

LEASE PAYMENTS: Tenant agrees to pay to Landlord as rent for the Premises the amount of $_________ (“Rent”) each month in advance on the first day of each month at: _____________ __________________________________________________ (address for rent payment) or at any other address designated by Landlord. If the Lease Term does not start on the first day of the month or end on the last day of a month, the rent will be prorated accordingly.

LATE CHARGES: If any amount under Lease is more than _____ days late, Tenant agrees to pay a late fee of $________.

INSUFFICIENT FUNDS: Tenant agrees to pay the charge of $_____ for each check given by Tenant to Landlord that is returned to Landlord for lack of sufficient funds.

SECURITY DEPOSIT:  [Check the provision that applies.]

   There is no security deposit.

   Tenant shall deposit with Landlord, in trust, a security deposit of $__________ as security for the performance by Tenant of the terms under this Lease and for any damages caused by Tenant, Tenants family, agents and visitors to the Premises during the term of this Lease. Landlord may use part or all of the security deposit to repair any damage to the Premises caused by Tenant, Tenants family, agents and visitors to the Premises. However, Landlord is not just limited to the security deposit amount and Tenant remains liable for any balance. Tenant shall not apply or deduct any portion of any security deposit from the last or any month's rent. Tenant shall not use or apply any such security deposit at any time in lieu of payment of rent. If Tenant breaches any terms or conditions of this Lease, Tenant shall forfeit any deposit, as permitted by law.

KEYS: Tenant will be given ___ key(s)/opening devices to the Premises.  Tenant shall be charged $_________ if all keys/opening devices are not returned to Landlord following termination of the Lease.

DEFAULTS: If Tenant fails to perform or fulfill any obligation under this Lease, Tenant shall be in default of this Lease. Subject to any statute, ordinance or law to the contrary, Tenant shall have seven (7) days from the date of notice of default by Landlord to cure the default. In the event Tenant does not cure a default, Landlord may at Landlords option (a) cure such default and the cost of such action may be added to Tenants financial obligations under this lease; or (b) declare Tenant in default of the Lease. In the event of default, Landlord may also, as permitted by law, re-enter the Premises and re-take possession of the Premises. Landlord may, at its option, hold Tenant liable for any difference between the rent that would have been payable under this Lease during the balance of the unexpired term, if this Lease had continued in force and any rent paid by any successive Tenant if the Premises are re-let. In the event Landlord is unable to re-let the Premises during any remaining term of this Lease, after default by Tenant, Landlord may at its option hold Tenant liable for the balance of the unpaid rent under this Lease if this Lease had continued in force. The failure of Tenants or their guests or invitees to comply with any term of this Lease is grounds for termination of the tenancy, with appropriate notice to Tenants and procedures as required by law.
 
POSSESSION AND SURRENDER OF PREMISES: Tenant shall be entitled to possession of the Premises on the first day of the Lease Term. At the expiration of the Lease, Tenant shall peaceably surrender the Premises to Landlord or Landlords agent in good condition, as it was at the commencement of the Lease, reasonable wear and tear excepted.

ALTERATIONS AND IMPROVEMENTS: Tenant agrees not to make any improvements or alterations to the Premises without prior written consent of the Landlord.

Such month-to-month tenancy shall be terminable on thirty (30) days notice by either party or on longer notice if required by law.

SECURITY AND RESPONSIBILITY FOR LOSS: Tenant understands that Landlord does not provide any security alarm system or other security for the Premises. Tenants vehicle or other possessions will occupy the parking space entirely at the risk of the Tenant.  Tenant releases Landlord from any loss, damage, claim or injury resulting from any casualty.

SEVERABILITY: If any part or parts of this Lease shall be held unenforceable for any reason, the remainder of this Lease shall continue in full force and effect. If any provision of this Lease is deemed invalid or unenforceable by any court of competent jurisdiction, and if limiting such provision would make the provision valid, then such provision shall be deemed to be construed as so limited.
