On July 26, the Texas Self Storage Association (TSSA) will host a webinar for its members on the state’s new self-storage lien law and other legislation that affects facility operators in the state. Presented by TSSA legal counsel Connie Heyer of Niemann & Heyer LLP, the webinar will take place 10 to 11:15 a.m. The cost is $25, and registration can be completed www.txssa.org/formstack.
Last month Texas Gov. Rick Perry signed a bill that modernizes the state’s 30-year-old self-storage lien law. The TSSA played an active role in this year’s legislative session to support changes to the Chapter 59 foreclosure process affecting self-storage operators in the state.
The upcoming webinar will explain what Texas operators need to do to comply with the new law, which goes into effect Jan. 1. Attendees will learn:
- An overview of this year’s legislative session
- How a self-storage operations are affected by the change
- What must now be in lease documents as a result of the new law
- Other changes to existing laws or new laws that affect a self-storage operation

Together with Larry Niemann, she is co-author of the TSSA Goldbook, a guide to laws and regulations affecting the state’s self-storage owners and managers.
