The contract defines the owner`s rights to enter and review your storage unit. In fact, it is explained that the owner has the right to enter your storage unit at any time. For example, if they suspect that unauthorized goods such as drugs, firearms, etc., are being stored. The storage contract also defines your obligations to keep the storage unit in good condition and that you are responsible for damage to the unit or any other part of the facility while you are on site. This includes anyone who visits the disk space on your behalf. There are a number of places in the agreement where you need to add your business data, information about your privacy document and certain conditions, z.B. 4 weekly or monthly contracts. These are all highlighted in yellow in the document. Most are on the front page, but additions are also needed in clauses 33 and 36 on the last page.
All of these yellow sections must be completed before the agreement is used. Pay particular attention to the selection of the 28-day or month-to-month countdown and the notice. This notice period applies to both the Self Storage Store and the customer. It is usually 28 days, but can be as short as 7 days. We do not recommend that members amend the agreement, with the exception of the recommendations contained in this document. What may look like a small change to reflect your business could make a big difference from the legal position of the agreement. If you have any questions about the agreement, please contact the SSA UK office to discuss the matter. The first point that the agreement should set out is the parties to whom the agreement applies.
This includes the storage company and you or your business as tenants. It contains contact information for you and for the storage company. It will also determine the start date of the contract. It is also important to understand if a refund is available to you if you have paid for an entire month, or even longer on a prepaid deal, but partly through this month. Some self-storage companies offer refunds for unused periods. But many won`t. So if it`s a month-to-month contract and you`re partially leaving the month, you`re not entitled to some kind of refund for that month. The contract also defines the behavior of each person in or in the storage facility.
It establishes that the occupant of the unit is responsible for the behaviour of individuals or organizations entering or on behalf of individuals or organizations entering the field or storage unit with them. It should also say that the storage company should be informed of anyone with the right to enter the storage unit.
