Be Legal Savvy
The popularity of reality TV shows focused on self-storage auctions has shined a spotlight on the industry’s lien-sale procedures. Not only are more people attending sales, tenants have become more savvy about the process—some even learning how to cheat the system. Judges have a new perspective on wrongful-sale lawsuits, and lawmakers are reconsidering lien-notice procedures.
In light of the increased scrutiny, it’s vital operators fully understand how to manage their auctions, from the lease signing through delinquency and auction day. The ISS Expo’s legal and insurance track offers two key seminars to help owners and managers understand their legal responsibilities and rights: "Managing Your Self-Storage Auctions" will outline the ins and outs of sales rules, including how to advertise and plan lien sales, and what to do if a default tenant participates. During "I Can Get in Trouble for That?" attendees will learn about important operational mistakes to avoid.
In addition, this year’s show will include a Legal Q&A with attorney Jeffrey Greenberger. He’ll address attendees' biggest concerns in the one-hour session, open to all paid education registrants.
Exhibit Hall, Networking and More
Of course, the ISS Expo offers more than just an outstanding education program. The two-day exhibit hall, along with several networking opportunities, enables attendees to learn more about every facet of the industry, including security and software, construction and development, real estate, business insurance, kiosks, and more.
It’s time to make a positive impact on your self-storage business. Get industry tools, resources and know-how at the ISS Expo and make 2012 your best year yet. For more details, visit www.insideselfstorageworldexpo.com.
