With TV reality shows shining a spotlight on the self-storage industrys lien-sale practices, facility operators are keenly aware of their legal risks and responsibilities. Concerns over wrongful-sale lawsuits has led self-storage owners and managers to seek the legal information they need to operate their business to the letter of the law.
Several education sessions of the Inside Self-Storage World Expo in Las Vegas, March 14-16, will highlight self-storage legal risks and show operators how to avoid them. The Legal Learning Live workshop on March 15 will cover lien sales and a range of other legal topics. During the four-hour session, attorney Jeffrey Greenberger will provide a detailed overview of the lien-sale process, including steps to take in the event of a lawsuit. The seminar will include a workbook and a series of sample forms attendees can reference in their self-storage operation.
The ISS Expo will also include seminars on:
- Structuring a self-storage business for legal protection and risk-prevention
- Managing self-storage auctions
- Revising rental agreements
- Dealing with tenant bankruptcy
In addition, attendees can participate in an open-forum Legal Q&A, where they can ask Greenberger specific questions. The interactive, one-hour discussion will cover as many topics as time allows.
The ISS Expo at the Paris Hotel & Resort will feature 36 seminars, four workshops, two days of product and service exhibits, and peer-to-peer networking events. Show details are available at www.insideselfstorageworldexpo.com.
