The Florida Self Storage Association, with support from the national Self Storage Association, has been working to create legislative improvements for the states self-storage operators. Its proposed revision to Florida's self-storage lien statute, Senate Bill 646 (SB 646), passed unanimously in the Senate in early March and awaits the signature of Gov. Rick Scott. The bill's companion legislation, House Bill 715 (HB 715), was read on Feb. 23 and also passed unanimously. If passed, the new law will go into effect July 1.
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.
