Self-Storage facilities are popping up wherever you go. It is estimated that there are between 45,000 to 60,000 such facilities across the United States. In order to rent a storage unit, tenants/unit occupants and landlords/owners of these facilities enter into rental agreements. Issues that may arise include disagreements concerning payment amounts and terms, property damage, and wrongful sale of contents. Often, the self-storage lease/rental agreement will contain an arbitration clause requiring the parties to resolve disputes through private arbitration. Arbitration is an expeditious and cost-effective alternative to litigation.
NAM (National Arbitration and Mediation) has created a customized program to resolve self-storage industry disputes. NAM’s program includes a distinct set of arbitration rules specific to the resolution of the self-storage disputes, a nationwide panel of independent arbitrators who are skilled at resolving these types of cases and experienced case managers to assist with the administration of these matters.
