Re: subletting the parking lot

In canton de Vaud, and only in canton de Vaud, you have to obtain the written authorization of your agency to sublet your parking space.
Based on Federal law, the Swiss code of obligation Article 262 you will always need an authorization (verbal or written, better written) from the initial letter of a property (commercial, residential, and others):

Quote:
1 A tenant may sub-let all or part of the property with the landlord's consent.

2 The landlord may refuse his consent only if:

a. the tenant refuses to inform him of the terms of the sub-lease;
b. the terms and conditions of the sub-lease are unfair in comparison with those of the principal lease;
c. the sub-letting gives rise to major disadvantages for the landlord.
3 The tenant is liable to the landlord for ensuring that the sub-tenant uses the property only in the manner permitted to the tenant himself. To this end the landlord may issue reminders directly to the sub-tenant

For it to be legally binding a lease contract should be drawn up. Now, whether this is between you and the car owner or the régie and the car owner, I am not sure, you would need to ask your régie. I would imagine they need to be in the know because if your lease ends and you move out whilst the parking spot is still under lease contract, the régie may find it harder to rent out an apartment with no parking spot.
A lease and also a sub-lease contract can be verbal. There is no prescribed form mandated by the law. A written contract can be advisable and is also simpler to communicate with original letter.

Do not over-complicate things. Most is already good as defined by the default clauses in the Code of Obligations. Either keep it simple and short (who, what, till when, rent, when rent has to be paid (end or beginning of month), deposit) or use a pre-print by a reputable source or organization.

As it is not a residential property, there is no need to put the deposit into a special rental deposit account.

Parties of a sub-lease contract are only sub-letter and sub-tenant. Original letter or property owner is not a party of the sub-let contract. If original contract ends, sub-lease contract will also end by law .

Art. 266g
Quote:
1 Where performance of the contract becomes unconscionable for the parties for good cause, they may terminate the lease by giving the legally prescribed notice expiring at any time.

2 The court determines the financial consequences of early termination, taking due account of all the circumstances.
Art. 273b
Quote:
1 The provisions of this Chapter apply to sub-leases provided the principal lease has not been terminated. A sub-lease may be extended only within the duration of the principal lease.

2 Where the main purpose of the sub-lease is to circumvent the provisions governing protection against termination, the sub-tenant is granted such protection without regard to the principal lease. If the principal lease is terminated, the landlord is subrogated to the rights of the tenant in his contract with the sub-tenant.
If no longer notice period is defined in the contract Art. 266e Code of Obligations https://www.admin.ch/opc/en/classifi...dex.html#a266e takes preceedence:
Quote:
A party may terminate the lease of furnished rooms, a separately rented parking space or other comparable facility by giving two weeks' notice expiring at the end of a one-month period of the lease.
Sub-letter may be liable for compensation if sub-tenant is not informed in good time about a cancelled main lease.

Re: subletting the parking lot

The high price the OP pays her parking space will not help rent it.

There are also two park-apps that could her get some of her money back: Park it.ch and Parku.ch
