Can garage be excluded from the tenancy agreement?

This is something that came up on another forum I use. It doesn’t apply to me as my present flat does not have a garage, just a designated parking space behind a gated area.

If you have a flat with a garage, is it legal to just have the flat on the tenancy contract, but not the garage? For example, you may wish to use it to keep your own stuff in, especially with flats, as the garage is usually in a block away from the actual property.

Just curious and would like to know the answer.

If you own both you can let out one without the other.

Thank you Colin, as I thought x

Yes it can. Just make it clear the garage is not included in the AST. I do this with a property and let the garage to a neighbour on a separate licence. The licence says that the neighbour must pay a fee each year to me to cover a small proportion of the tenants council tax and utility bills attributable to the garage. I then pass this on to the tenants who are always delighted when they get their unexpected cheque!
