Earlier this year, a self-storage operator in Maine caused quite a stir when he attempted to sell a unit full of records from a defunct mortgage company. The press and public were outraged, and the Maine legislature jumped into action with a bill to regulate self-storage auctions.
So what is a self-storage owner or manager supposed to do when he finds business records or other personally identifiable information in a unit that has been abandoned or gone into default? This question and others will be answered during a free webinar titled, “Addressing Abandoned Records in Self-Storage: What We Can Learn From Maine.” The live event will take place on Oct. 13 at 11:30 ET and is hosted by Inside Self-Storage.
Part of the ISS Legal Learning Series, the online seminar will be presented by industry legal expert Jeffrey Greenberger. He will discuss the current status of the law, the options options as a facility owner or manager, and issues to consider when you auction a unit in this situation.
