Delinquent Storage Tenants Lose Property to Water Damage in Oildale

A couple who fell behind in rental payments on their unit at A-American Self Storage in Oildale, Calif., claim their belongings are water damaged due to a leaky roof.

A couple who fell behind in rental payments on their unit at A-American Self Storage in Oildale, Calif., claim their belongings are water damaged due to a leaky roof. Beverly Steward and Todd Lee, who have rented a unit at the facility for about a year and a half, received letters from A-American indicating that their goods would be sold at auction due to non-payment. They scraped together $700 and visited the facility, which is when they discovered the damage.
 
Representatives from A-American said they found no water damage when they photographed the unit. They also said they attempted to work with the couple but could not come to a resolution. The couple’s tenant-insurance policy had also lapsed due to non-payment.
