Florida Self Storage Association to Host New Lien-Law Seminars


Florida Gov. Rick Scott recently signed into law a revised self-storage lien statute, and the Florida Self Storage Association (FSSA) is hosting several regional seminars to educate facility operators about the new legislation. The three-hour seminar includes lunch and lien-law guidebook for $49.99. The scheduled locations are:

  • May 29, Panama City
  • May 31, Gainesville
  • June 5, Ft. Lauderdale
  • June 7, Melbourne
  • June 12, Sarasota
  • June 14, Orlando

Event details and an online registration form can be found at www.floridassa.org. Interested parties can also contact FSSA Executive Director Robert Bret at rbret@floridassa.org or 877.222.9441.

Effective July 1, the lien law allows Florida self-storage operators to use cheaper and more effective delinquency-notification options, such as e-mail or First Class Mail with a Certificate of Mailing. The new statute also contains the following provisions:

  • Tenants can provide a change of address to the facility using First Class Mail or e-mail.
  • Self-storage rental contracts or applications ask whether a person is in the military.

More information about House Bill 715 and companion Senate Bill 646 can be found at FLSenate.gov.

The FSSA is a non-profit organization of businesspeople involved in the self-storage industry in Florida. Its members include facility owners, operators, vendors, developers, investors, property managers and suppliers.
