Lien Law Registry

Self-storage lien sales are a critical component of facility operation, but a poorly conducted sale that fails to adhere to state laws can be a hotbed of legal woe. When conducting a self-storage auction, follow your state's self-storage statute or other storage-related legislation to the letter. You'll find the lien law for your state below. When in doubt, seek the advice of an attorney.

Note: Inside Self-Storage has done its best to provide the most current lien-law documentation for each state; but laws can change, and many state self-storage associations are working to improve their local legislation. To ensure you are accessing the most current version of the law or to view pending modifications, visit the website for your state legislature or contact your association for guidance.
