Virginia Governor Glenn Youngkin last week signed Senate Bill (SB 355) into law, amending the way in which self-storage rental agreements can be delivered to customers and updating the state’s vehicle-towing legislation for delinquent tenants. SB 335 takes effect on July 1, according to an April 15 email newsletter from the national Self Storage Association to its members.

Under the new law, self-storage rental agreements can be delivered and signed electronically, thus establishing a process for enforcing unsigned leases. It also permits the towing of any abandoned, immobilized, unattended or trespassing vehicles or watercraft that aren’t authorized to be at the self-storage facility. The towing must be carried out in accordance with local private-property towing ordinances or the process outlined by the Virginia Department of Motor Vehicles.

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.
