Self-Storage Auctions/When to auction
I have a storage unit facility in Ohio. I have a customer that pays a small amount every 60 days or so, keeping me from actioning the contents of this locker. Is there a gray area in Ohio laws that states a total amount due instead of a time frame of 60 days? Im loosing money like crazy on this one!!
Do you belong to a State or National storage association? If you do, you most likely could join the Self Storage Legal Network and get these questions answered very economically. As a storage owner and part of a larger real estate company with in house lawyers, we still belong to this group. http://www.selfstoragelaw.com
I am not an attorney, but I would suggest stop taking partial payments, demand the entire balance and start the lien process according to your state law.
State lien laws are short reads...you have a new one taking place in March in Ohio that even streamlines the process further. It seems you are making a very small issue much more than it need to be... http://www.storagetreasures.com/general-information/state-lien-laws/ohio#.USOWb6
