- Understanding Lien the Procedure
That self-storage rent seemed soaffordable when you signed the lease. But now, past-due notices are stackingup, and the storage facility is threatening to auction off your belongings.
Can a self-storage business reallysell your stuff when you fall behind on rent? Yes, it can. And unless you takeaction, it will.
From the day you move yourbelongings into self-storage and sign the lease, a lien is in place againstthose items, according to Scott Zucker, an Atlanta attorneywho specializes in self-storage matters. That lien lets the storage facilitysell your unit’s contents to recoup what it’s owed if you don’t pay the rent.The facility can’t hold an auction right away, though.
Every state has differentself-storage lien laws in place but most follow a similar timeline.
Rent is always due on the 1stof each month. Your lease defines the point of default, which typically isbetween 5 and 30 days after rent is due. When you are delinquent, $20.00 isadded for a late fee. A self-storage operator can deny access to your storageunit. “After five days, the gate automatically locks out, so we make phonecalls/send out emails at that point,” You can regain access by paying thepast-due amount. If payment hasn’t been made by the 15th of themonth, prelien fee of $20.00 is added making the tenant go into prelien. Rentand late fees continue to accrue.
Self-storage facilities usually mailat least one lien letter specifying the past-due amount, fees and scheduledauction date. Many states also allow email notification, since tenants on themove may not receive snail mail. “No matter where a tenant is, they cantypically be reached through email,” Liencharge of $150.00 can be added after 30 days delinquent (usually added on oraround the 15th of the month.)
Most laws require public notice tobe “conspicuous.” Public sale notices will be published twice in the localnewspaper, advertised 8 days apart and posted on the marque at the self-storagefacility or listed on their website.
4.Lien Sale (aka Auction Time)
The time span between default and thetime your stuff is sold varies by state, ranging from 30 to 90 days. You canalways pay what you owe until the day of auction to stop the sale, however oncethe auction is over, you can’t get sold items back. Sale proceeds go towardyour storage debt.
Thedelinquent unit that is in lien will be sold at public sale on 76th day orafter. We try to recoup what is owed to us. If a balance is left owing afterthe sale, it is sent to a collection agency.
HowCan I Stop or Delay the Lien Process?
- Pay Up. The best approach is to pay the past-due amount to stop a sale and be prepared to move out immediately to avoid continuing charges.
- Communicate. Don’t ignore letters and phone calls. “At that point, the managers hands are tied
- Be an informed consumer. Be sure to check out your state’s lien laws.
