Yvonne most places do include the garage, but for clarification ask the landlord/management company about the amenities offered..

I concur with Deborah and Jane. Somewhere in the advertising for the rental should include all the amenities the owner is offering.

Of course you would ask them what they are offering with the rental for clarification. Plus I would recommend you have the owner or their representative show you where the parking is for the rental you are interested in renting. If the representative is unsure, do make sure you call them back for confirmation of the parking loacation. Do not forget to ask them about permit/restricted parking either for yourself and your guests. There are many areas of Westwood and in Los Angeles that do require permit parking certain times of the day and it is normal and customary for the tenant to pay for the parking permit.

Best of Success to you.

Deborah pretty much answered the question. Generally a description of the place you are renting will include number of parking spaces and if so the parking is included in the rent. These spaces are not necessarily in a community garage, and most often will not be in a private garage. Many of them can be at the side of the building and may or may not be covered. If parking is important then make sure you know what you are getting.

Hi Yvonne;
The best answer is "usually, but it depends".
Most single family homes in Westwood have garages, due to city regulations. Unless the owner is reserving use of all or part of the garage for his own personal storage (which is RARE), parking off street will be included.
Newer apartments also must provide parking, which is generally included in the rental price. What you may find, in older apartments, or unusual rentals, such as guest houses, cottages, etc. is that no garage or off street parking is include. This is also often the case on rooms for rent or shared rentals.
There is no law that says the landlord must provide parking, but the availability and inclusion of parking must be specified in the lease in order to protect your parking rights.
