Parking contracts / Garage contracts

Mobility is a relevant subject in our current time, all the more so in big cities. No matter how important it is to contemplate the problem of incessant traffic jams, they should not leave us gridlocked. This is the reason why parking garages and parking spaces are constantly cropping up in our cities.

As far as the law is concerned there are important differences to be made when it comes to either a parking contract or a garage contract. A parking contract normally falls under general rental law, but a garage contract can be subject to regulations on bailment. Questions on the subject of third party liability, theft, fire, damage caused by freezing weather, car crashes, and other forms of damage, will vary depending on the classification of the agreement.  

A prudent parking/garage owner will want to install a camera surveillance system or hire a private security firm. This naturally leads to all sorts of legal considerations involving camera surveillance, privacy and the legislation on private security.
