I am sure you have seen the recent news about Governors across the country declaring states of emergency. We prepared a brief memo here, which includes a link to the state-by-state pricing restrictions that apply during a state of emergency.
Many of us are familiar with the term “price gouging.” You may have seen the news article about the brothers who stored 18,000 bottles of hand sanitizer in a storage unit! However, it is important to keep in mind that many of the state pricing restrictions apply even if the business did not intend to “gouge” the consumer. As an example in our industry, these pricing restrictions may apply even to standard rate increases.
We are monitoring state and federal legislative activity and will keep you apprised of any developments that may affect the self storage industry.
