|Subject:||Self-Service Storage Facilities Act|
|In the near future, I plan on re-introducing legislation to make some timely updates to the Self-Service Storage Facilities Act. The legislation will make updates to newspaper advertising and late fees. The new bill will reflect negotiations and amendments added during the previous session, at the request of members, interested parties, and the administration.
Specifically, under current law, self-storage facility owners are only allowed to advertise in a newspaper. With the readership of newspapers declining significantly, this is not the most effective way to reach an audience, so the bill allows owners to advertise on the Internet.
For late fees, there is no current law to address this, so the bill adds the option for a late fee when an occupant fails to pay within 5 days of the due date.
These changes are significant in making the Act more modern and protect both the owners and the occupants.
Please join me in co-sponsoring this legislation.
Introduced as HB1103
