About this lease
This car or lorry park lease is suitable for letting any land used for parking vehicles, from a temporary building site to a formally laid out, permanent park.
This document should be used to let a plot of land that the tenant will use to park and store vehicles, most likely cars or lorries. The agreement allows for existing buildings or items of plant (e.g. an office or car wash) to be included within the lease.
The lease has been drawn to prefer the interest of the landlord rather than the tenant.
Provided the term of the lease is seven years or less, it does not need to be registered at the Land Registry.

Scottish version of this lease
The law governing commercial leases is substantially different in Scotland as compared with England, Wales and Northern Ireland. In Scotland there is no equivalent to the Landlord and Tenant Acts. There is little legislation or case law relating to leases in Scotland. So the version we have drawn for our Scottish user is common law based.
On registration of leases in Scotland, only commercial leases for longer than 20 years must be registered in the Land Register of Scotland. However, the lease is often registered in the Books of Council and Session in Edinburgh.
