Current balance

To find out the current balance on your rent account or check any queries relating to your rent account contact the Rents Section as below.​

If you are away

You should pay your rent in advance so that your rent account does not go into arrears.​

Payment in arrears

If you don't pay your rent on time, you will be sent an arrears letter, which is noted on your records.

If you continue not to pay the City of London Corporation will terminate your use of the space or garage.​

Terminate a parking facility

You must give at least seven days' notice in writing to the Rents Team starting on a Monday and ending on a Monday and we will not terminate your use of this facility until we receive this notice and rent will continue to be charged. 

NOTE: if you terminate your tenancy , your car parking facility will NOT automatically terminate. You must give us notice in writing.

Giving your permit/space to someone else

You cannot give your permit/space to someone else as the facility is not transferable and you are still responsible for paying the rent. We will terminate the rent account and you will not be allowed to have another space or garage.​

Change of vehicle

You must tell us in writing immediately and send a copy of your vehicle registration, insurance and MOT documents.

Complete the change of vehicle form, or send a letter to the Rents Section.

Lost or defaced parking permits

You need to contact the estate office to get a temporary permit so that your vehicle will not be clamped.

Contact the Rent Section and we will send you a permanent permit. You should keep your parking permit on your windscreen at all times as your vehicle may be clamped and you will have to pay for this to be removed. 

The water rates charged on parking facilities are for the drainage systems and are set by Thames Water.​

Parking permits payments are made to the Rents Section.

Go to pay your rent for details about payment methods.

Parking on the Barbican Estate is managed separately.
