What Happens When the Storage Space Bill is Not Paid, Part II

Many renters (meaning storage space occupants) wonder how long they can go without paying the bill before something negative happens.  The answer is 14 days from the day it is due, in Nevada.  Nevada law provides:

NRS 108.476  Unpaid charges: Termination of occupant’s right to use storage space; notice; imposition of lien.

    1.  If any charges for rent or other items owed by the occupant remain unpaid for 14 days or more, the owner may terminate the occupant’s right to use the storage space at the facility, for which charges are owed, not less than 14 days after sending a notice by verified mail and if available, electronic mail to the occupant at his or her last known address and to the alternative address provided by the occupant in the rental agreement…  .

So, there is not a large grace period here.  Really, it’s two weeks.  At that time the storage facility owner can send out a notice by verified mail and email, if the owner has one, notifying the renter of the issue.

The law provides that the right to use the storage space is terminated another 14 days after the owner sends the notice.

Someone storing private property such as antiques, files, photos, furniture, collectibles, antiques, cars, boats, RVs, clothing and more has to pay the monthly bill just like one has to do with the monthly mortgage, or else someone will take the property away.

Nevada statutes and the contracts renters fill out with the storage facility outline the respective rights, duties and obligations of both the storage facility and the renter.  If the renter does not pay the storage unit payment, a series of things occur.  Ultimately, if after the storage facility owner gives the proper notices, it can sell the contents of the storage unit to pay off the bill that continues to accrue for the term of the contract.
