The Pennsylvania Self Storage Association supports HB1756, which is a continuation in PASSA’s efforts to modernize the self storage lien law. Specifically, HB1756:
- provides for alternatives to advertising lien sales in the newspaper;
- establishes a late fee safe harbor of $20 or 20% of rent, whichever is greater;
- allows operators to deny access when the tenant is in default for at least 5 days (down from the current 20 days); and
- expressly authorizes online lien sales.
The bill is expected to be heard by the House Commerce Committee in November. PASSA members are urged to call or email the state representatives whose districts cover their homes and businesses and ask those representatives to support HB1756. It is especially helpful for representatives on the Commerce Committee to hear from PASSA members.
