RENTAL AGREEMENT

 

This rental agreement is entered into between Handy Storage Thirteen, hereinafter referred to as “Owner” and , hereinafter referred to as “Tenant.” In consideration of all the terms and conditions herein, Owner does hereby lease to Tenant storage space # (hereinafter “Space” or “Premises”). THE RULES AND REGULATIONS POSTED AT THE PREMISES ARE BY REFERENCE MADE PART OF THIS AGREEMENT, which rules and regulations may be modified by Owner to assist with the operation, safety, and cleanliness of the Premises. The Premises is operated in accordance with the state and local laws governing self storage facilities, which are herein incorporated by reference.

 

  1. TERM: Owner agrees to lease the above-referenced space to Tenant for a term of one (1) months beginning . Should Tenant hold over and retain possession of said space after the expiration of this lease, its occupancy of said space shall be as a tenant from month to month with Owner’s consent, at the prevailing rental rate. All terms and conditions of this Agreement shall continue in full force and effect so long as Tenant retains possession of said space.

     

  2. RENT: The Tenant agrees to pay the Owner, for the use of the space, the monthly sum listed above as the Monthly Rate. Monthly installments are payable in advance at the office of the self storage facility on or before the anniversary date of each month and a like amount for each month thereafter, until the termination of this agreement. Owner acknowledges receipt of the sum set out above showing payment through the date shown above. NO MONTHLY BILLS OR STATEMENTS WILL BE SENT TO TENANT UNLESS ELECTED ABOVE. If Tenant elects to receive monthly billing statements a monthly service charge of $2.00 shall be added to the Tenants account. If any monthly installment is not paid within five days of the anniversary date, or if any check in payment is dishonored, Tenant shall be deemed to be in default. Default can also be the Tenant’s failure to perform any terms or conditions of this Rental Agreement or Tenant’s breach of the peace. In the event of Tenant’s default, Owner may, without notice, deny the Tenant access to the property located in the self storage facility. Owner may, after a five day period, over lock and place a different padlock on the rented premises over which only the Owner and his agents have control. Tenant’s property will be sold at public auction if Tenant fails to pay all sums due to Owner to cure its default. Tenant agrees and understands that partial payments made to cure a default for non -payment of rent will not delay or stop the Owner’s enforcement of lien and sale of Tenant’s property. Partial payments do not waive or avoid the legal effect of prior notices given to Tenant. Only full payment on Tenant’s account prior to the published auction date will stop the scheduled sale of the property. Rental payments and other charges can be made by cash, check, traveler’s checks and credit card. Owner reserves the right, especially when Tenant is in default, to refuse payment by check or credit card unless bank check or certified check is presented. All payments made by check should be payable to. No refunds are given for rent or fees already paid, including future month’s rent.

     

  3. OTHER CHARGES: The onetime, Non-Refundable administration fee of $ is required for each unit rented. If any monthly installment is not received before five (5) days of the Paid Thru Date, Tenant shall pay to Owner a late charge of $20, said late charge to be immediately due and payable without demand from Owner. If any monthly installment is not received before twenty (20) days of the Paid Thru Date, Tenant shall pay to Owner an additional late charge of $20, said late charge to be immediately due and payable without demand from Owner. If any check is dishonored for any reason, said late charge shall be due and payable in addition to a return check charge of $ . If Tenant’s property is processed for sale at public auction, Tenant shall be responsible for a minimum public auction-processing fee of $60. Use of electricity at the facility, and/or use of the waste facilities are strictly prohibited and if found using the properties electricity or waste facilities you will be charged a fee in accordance with such usage. All late fees are a service charge. Partial payments will not be accepted, however, if a partial payment is accepted it will be at the sole discretion of the Owner and if accepted it will first be applied to fees and service charges, then to monthly Rental Charges and tax.

     

  4. ACCESS: Tenant and tenants authorized access persons shall have access to the Space and Premises only during such hours and days as are regularly posted at the Premises, which are subject to change by Owner. It is the Tenant’s sole responsibility as to those persons who are given access to the Tenants Space.

     

  5. USE AND COMPLIANCE WITH LAW: The space named herein is to be used by the Tenant solely for the purpose of storing any personal property belonging to the Tenant.

The Tenant agrees that the property will not be used for any purposes unlawful or contrary to any ordinance, regulation, fire code or health code and the Tenant agrees not to commit waste, nor to create a nuisance, nor alter or affix signs on the space, and will keep the space in good condition during the term of the Agreement. The Tenant shall not store in the space and property to which any other person or business has right, title, or interest. The use of electricity in the space is strictly prohibited unless agreed upon in writing with Owner. The Tenant agrees not to store jewels, furs, heirlooms, art works, collectibles or other irreplaceable items having special or emotional value to the Tenant. There shall be NO HABITABLE OCCUPANCY of the space by humans or pets of any kind for any period whatsoever and violation of these prohibitions shall be grounds for immediate TERMINATION of the Agreement. Food products, both perishable and non-perishable, are prohibited from being stored in any space without written authorization from Handy Storage.

     

  6. LIMITATION OF VALUE: Tenant agrees that in no event shall the total value of all property stored be deemed to exceed $5,000 unless Owner has given permission in writing for Tenant to store property exceeding $5,000 in value and Tenant has provided proof of insurance to Owner to cover the value of the stored property. Tenant agrees that the maximum liability of Owner to Tenant for any claim or suit by Tenant, including but not limited to any suit which alleges wrongful or improper foreclosure or sale of the contents of a storage unit is $5,000. Nothing in this section shall be deemed to create any liability on the part of Owner to Tenant for any loss or damage to Tenant’s property, regardless of cause.

     

  7. TENANT’S RISK OF LOSS: No bailment is created by this Agreement. Owner is not a warehouseman engaged in the business of storing goods for hire.

In the event that the space is damaged or destroyed by fire or other casualty, Owner shall have the right to remove the contents of the space and store it at the Tenant’s sole cost and expenses without liability for any loss or damage whatsoever, and Tenant shall indemnify and hold Owner harmless from and against any loss, cost, or expense of Owner in connection with such removal and storage. Should any of Owner’s employees perform any services for Tenant at Tenant’s request, such employee shall be deemed to be the agent of the Tenant regardless of whether payment for such services is made or not, and Tenant agrees to indemnify and hold Owner harmless from any liability in connection with or arising from directly or indirectly such services performed by employees of Owner. Notwithstanding that Owner shall not be liable for such occurrences, Tenant agrees to notify Owner immediately upon the occurrence of any injury, damage, or loss suffered by Tenant or other person in any of such circumstances.
