Pennsylvania Self Storage Association

HB 1756 Vote in December - January

December 16, 2019 2:17 PM | Julie LaRose (Administrator)

Please call or email your state representative today and ask him or her to support House Bill 1756. 

The bill is expected to be voted on by the House in December or January. 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.  

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.
