MiniCo Self-Storage Legal Webinar Series Focuses on Handling
Competing Customer Property Claims

PHOENIX, ARIZ. – MiniCo’s three-part Self-Storage Legal Webinar Series concludes on December 5, 2012, with a session focused on the legal issues surrounding multiple claims on customer property. Highly regarded self-storage legal experts Scott Zucker and D. Carlos Kaslow will present the one-hour session entitled Handling Competing Claims on Customer Property.

One of the most difficult and confusing issues for a self-storage operator involves multiple claims to personal property that is stored in a tenant’s unit. Whether or not the unit is in foreclosure or the tenant has died, self-storage operators can face family members, ex-spouses, creditors, finance companies, bankers and lawyers all of whom may make claims on the stored property. The webinar will discuss a variety of scenarios as well as the legal approach to resolving competing claims.

Topics will include:

  • What rights do lienholders have both before and after a tenant default?
  • Can a former boyfriend take his property out of his girlfriend’s space?
  • What do you do when a bankruptcy trustee demands access to a space?

The cost of each session in the Self Storage Legal Webinar Series is $49.95. For details or to register, visit
