Georgia Gov. Brian Kemp signed House Bill 934 (HB 934) into law on May 6, which modifies the state’s self-storage legislation. HB 934 establishes a process for disposing of property left behind after a self-storage tenant vacates their unit and amends the way in which facility rental agreements can be delivered to customers. It takes effect on July 1, according to a May 13 email newsletter from the national Self Storage Association (SSA) to its members.

The new law addresses customers whose rental agreements were terminated or not renewed for a reason other than non-payment. In addition, rental agreements can now be sent and signed electronically. It’s similar to legislation passed recently in Kansas and Idaho.

The SSA represents more than 22,000 U.S. and international member-affiliated self-storage facilities, according to its website. It’s allied with several state and international self-storage associations and has about 6,000 members.
