For operators who want the most up-to-date information on self-storage legal issues, the Inside Self-Storage Vegas Expo at the Mandalay Bay Resort & Casino, Feb. 28-March 3, includes informative seminars hosted by several industry experts. In “The Self-Storage Lease and Legal Protection,” attendees will learn the basics of creating a first-rate rental agreement, including how to steer clear of legal pitfalls, how to avoid ambiguity and repetition in lease language, and when to make modifications. “Legal Issues in Self-Storage: Auction Rules” will address ways for operators to reduce their potential liability to tenants, buyers and the general public when conducting a lien sale. “Advanced Legal Issues” will cover other essential topics: how to avoid and contend with lawsuits, tenant screening, employee-overtime claims, working with tenants who have military status and more. Finally, the Q&A session “Is It Legal?” will give attendees the opportunity to ask their own questions of an authority panel. For more information, visit www.insideselfstorage.com/expo/vegas/2006.
