Idaho has more than 440 self-storage facilities, serving a statewide population of 1,634,000. The Idaho Self Storage Association has helped spearhead several changes to our state’s lien laws but much remains to be done.
In an effort to modernize the storage industry, the IDSSA and the National Self Storage Association have identified 7 primary changes that need to be made to each state’s lien laws.
As an example to how these modernization efforts help with today’s storage owners and operators, take into account that the State of Idaho requires us to send official correspondence by certified mail only. Across the country this method has been shunned as other communication methods have been developed such as verified mail and e-mail.
The IDSSA is always vigilant in protecting the industry from unnecessary laws or regulations but some changes are necessary. If you have questions or concerns regarding the industry’s relationship with the government, please feel free to contact us.
Please reach out to us if you have an issue or want to notify us about an issue within the self storage community.
