Hi - my name is ***** ***** I'll be glad to assist.
If the rental fee is late/delinquent, then the landlord has the right to seize the property and sell the items in order to pay the storage fees. However, the storage owner must provide the renter at least 14 days notice. Here's a good link that you can read about this process: http://www.storagetreasures.com/general-information/state-lien-laws/florida
If you need anything further, please let me know. Also, please take time to positively rate our conversation so I may receive credit for assisting. Thanks.
Hi - I'm sorry about the circumstances that surround this issue. Obviously, I didn't know these other issues were present with your situation.
I understood your question to be what the laws were, and I provided the same.
That said, the law doesn't provide exceptions, but a judge just may. If the storage owner follows the proper notice laws, the only thing you could do is file for a restraining order to stop the sale and give your reasons for failing to pay on time.
The judge certainly give you a break based on the circumstances and provide you with some time to get the storage fees up to date.
Please let me know if you have any additional questions. Also, please take time to positively rate our conversation so I may receive credit for assisting. Thanks!
