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.

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.
