Make it clear to the guest that “air-conditioned” means nothing more than trying to keep the temperature no more than 80 degrees and no colder than 60 degrees – or whatever you think you can really hold. It should also be clear that the term does not mean that you have control over humidity, power outages, or other environmental factors that can cause fluctuations in air quality. I have dealt with several lawsuits over the years where this was the main problem with a mold/mildew claim. Every supreme court in the state has written cases that define what is acceptable in terms of limitation of liability clauses. Some states allow you to limit some types of liability, but not all. For this, you need a lawyer. Ask your lawyer to draft a clause for your lease that covers everything you can restrict by agreement. Make sure this clause is bold, visible and easily identifiable. The same rules apply to a storage contract. The items stored are essentially the tenants, and both parties need protection in case any legal problems arise.
For example, the storage contract lists all items and covers them in detail in terms of the size and weight of the item and the type of container. It will also list all the payment details in case of problems with late rental payment etc. I am the first lawyer in my family. My father and grandfather were entrepreneurs and, like many of their generation, they believed that a handshake was all it took to make a deal. “A man`s word is his bond,” they said. If only it were that simple. They looked at a contract, shook their heads in frustration and wondered why so much formality was needed. “These are these [damn] lawyers,” they said.
Today, the lease is the lifeblood of the landlord-tenant relationship, and a handshake in the hand doesn`t cut. A storage contract is a contract concluded by two parties. One party is the warehousekeeper of the goods, known as the warehousekeeper. The other party is the depositor, the person who stores the items. The tenant understands that no guarantee is provided for the storage unit and that all stored goods are responsible under the sole responsibility of the tenant. A storage lease is a very simple document. The most important terms are those that describe the storage space and those that describe the expected payment. The tenant may only use the storage unit for storage purposes and may not store live animals or perishables on the premises. Ownership within the unit is the sole responsibility of the tenant. The landlord does not assume or imply responsibility for the tenant`s property at any time. Upon termination of this warehouse lease, the tenant has 24 hours to remove the entire property from the rented unit.
Any property that remains in the dwelling after this period becomes the property of the owner. Here`s some legal jargon you might encounter in a self-storage contract and what the terms mean in plain language: PandaTip: The following template section describes the tenant`s obligation to keep the storage unit in a clean, orderly and safe condition. This warehouse lease may only be amended, redacted or otherwise modified by a written amendment signed by both parties. This lease for the storage unit was entered into on [contract.date] by and between the parties of [Sender.FirstName] [Sender.LastName] (owner) and [client.first name] [customer.last name] (tenant). . . .
