The Pennsylvania Self Storage Association supports HB1756, which is a continuation in PASSA’s efforts to modernize the self storage lien law. Following negotiations with members of the House Commerce Committee, HB1756:
- reduces the number of lien sale advertisements that must be published in a 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 10 days (down from the current 20 days); and
- expressly authorizes online lien sales.
