The Self Storage Legal Network

The Self Storage Association and attorneys D. Carlos Kaslow, Joseph D. Joiner and Scott Zucker are embarking on their third year of providing one of the most valuable resources to self-storage professionals, the Self Storage Legal Network (SSLN). The SSLN is a hotline service available only to SSA members. It is one of the best sources available for obtaining industry-related legal advice.

The three attorneys, whose combined experience in the self-storage industry exceeds 50 years, jointly operate the network. Kaslow and Joiner wrote the SSA's authoritative book on drafting self-storage agreements, Rental Agreement Handbook, and Zucker is the author of Legal Topics in Self Storage. The three understand the self-storage business and believe there is a better way to provide owners and managers with quick, affordable access to the specialized legal information they need.

Annual subscription rates for the SSLN begin at $500 for operators with up to two facilities. For an operator with three to five locations or operating in more than one state, the annual subscription is $750. An operator with 10 facilities pays $1,000 a year plus $75 for each facility over 10.

When an SSLN member subscriber--or one of his authorized employees--has a question concerning self-storage operations, he simply calls or faxes his question into the network. The SSLN is staffed 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday and will provide a response to inquiries by the next business day. The network will thoroughly discuss all issues, and there is no limit on the number of calls or questions an operator can present.

How many times have you had a question about lien laws, rental agreements or partial payments? Almost every decision an operator makes regarding these self-storage issues will have legal repercussions if the improper course is followed. With the SSLN, owners and managers have an affordable legal service to which they can address questions before making any important decision. For more information or to take advantage of the service, please call the SSA at 703.921.9123.
