Current Bill Summary

SB 998 - This act revises provisions relating to self- service storage facilities. The act creates a lien on the personal property stored in the facility regardless of whether the property is owned by the occupant. The lien attaches as of the date the personal property is brought to the self-service storage facility or the date the occupant takes possession of the facility. The lien will have priority over all liens acquired subsequent to the bringing of the property on the leased premises.

The act also revised the notice requirements for sales of personal property from the leased premises. If the sale involves property of more than one occupant a single advertisement may be used to dispose of property of any one sale. The owner of the self-storage service facility is also allowed to deny an occupant access to the leased space without notice if the occupant is in default for more than five days. The denial of access may be accomplished without judicial process if it can be done without a breach of the peace, or the owner may proceed by court action.
