Self-Storage Legal Issues: Lien-Sale Procedures and Sale Rules

Taught by Jeffrey Greenberger

One of the stickiest areas of self-storage operation is the practice of lien sales, as it carries a tremendous amount of risk. Sales that do not follow the state statute to the letter or fail to adhere to the many critical steps involved put the self-storage operator in danger of facing a potential wrongful-sale lawsuit.

Recent court decisions have put the self-storage industry on notice that courts are not tolerant of operators' mistakes in wrongful sales. In light of this, there may be changes you should make to your lien-sale sale procedures and rules.

This course outlines a plan for facility operators preparing for a sale. You’ll learn what that plan should include and common mistakes to avoid. You’ll also get insight to creating sale rules and items that should be excluded from the sale.
