Summary: (1)Existing law, the California Self-Service Storage Facility Act, specifies remedies and procedures for self-service storage facility owners when occupants are delinquent in paying rent or other charges. Under existing law, if rent or other charges due from an occupant remain unpaid for 14 consecutive days, an owner may terminate the right of the occupant to the use of the storage space at a self-service storage facility by sending a preliminary lien notice by certified mail to the occupant’s last known address, defined to mean the address provided by the occupant, as specified. Existing law attaches the lien if the charges remain unpaid by a specified time and allows the owner to take specified actions. At that time, existing law requires the owner to send documentation related to the lien sale to the occupant’s last known address, as defined.This bill would remove the January 1, 2023, repeal date and would thereby extend indefinitely the authority to send the notice and documentation by electronic mail and the associated method of demonstrating actual delivery. The bill would make conforming changes.This bill contains other related provisions and other existing laws.
