  • Description
    A person rents space in mini-storage, pays the fee, gets his key and for all intents and purposes, the unit belongs to him for the duration of his contract. But does it? Is renting a unit in mini-storage the same as bailment? This CLE course will explain the fine line between self-storage and bailments and the impact of the 182 Lien Law and UCC Article 7. The course will review issues such as enforcement, evictions, lien exceptions, statutory licenses and much more.
