    Contract has to be signed by whoever's driver license or ID you are getting a copy of and the person you SEE in front of you. Must match the driver's license or ID.

    A lot of good answers here! I really appreciate your feedback. We get quite a few of these types of calls... family members moving to the area arriving on a day when the store is closed, etc. But the ones I find really questionable are the ones where Landlords who are evicting tenants who don't want to put their tenants items on the curb. It seems like a nice gesture ... but I can see where it can be really sticky on the end of the store!

    There may be some landlords who try to be kind even when faced with having to evict someone. In some states, however, they are statutorially compelled to secure the belongings and they must do so in a secure location (even if it's not mandated to be in a professional self-storage location, just somewhere safe/dry, etc.) NC is one of those states requiring landlords to protect the belongings of their evicted tenants. I've learned, too, that regs may differ from county to county in some states.

    I did a lease just today for a soon-to-be Ex-wife, who came w/ her brother to get a unit. Her lawyer told her it was ok to remove her hubby's things from the house and to store them. They came w/ the notion the lease would be in hubby's name. After I explained I would not do a lease in an absent 2nd party's name, a lease was done in brother's name. The wife adv that she can not or should not have any contact w/ her hubby, so brother signed also release so the ex could come and transfer it w/o wife around.

    It surprises me, though, how many people just don't understand they can't go around doing contracts in someone else's name even when I use the example of "Not only is it illegal w/o a power of atty but how would you feel if your ex went out and signed a lease on an apartment in your name...would you feel you should have to pay for it?" Of course, the answer is always "no", followed by "..but it's HIS/HER stuff!!", followed by "...yeah! but it's NOT legally his storage bill!" There's a dent on my desk from my head constantly hitting it while trying to make my point.

    DO NOT use a form to do a transfer. Use a form where a tenant can give permission for a third party to rent the unit. Unless the third party comes in and actually fills out the rental agreement, nothing changes. I have a form that I use. If you want it, send me an email. allstor@sbcglobal.net Richard

    We had exactly this happen. Landlord lives in San Francisco, is evicting tenant in Oakdale (70 miles away) and has all of tenant's stuff stored in our storage facility. The Landlord signed the contract and paid the storage bill for 3 months. She put the tenant down as 2nd contact. After 3 months the Landlord refused to pay the bill. I sent the pre-lien notice to both, the lien notice to both, I even called both several times. Long story short--I sold the unit at my auction in December. Two days after the auction, the tenant came to pay the storage bill so she could move her things out. Thank goodness that I follow the laws EXACTLY cuz this lady screamed and threatened me, but I haven't heard from her since. I kind of told her it was between her and her old Landlord.
    Have you ever stopped to think and forgotten to start again?

    Our form doesn't "transfer" a unit - it states that Joe Schmoo must sign a new lease and until that happens, everything stays the same.

    That's where I was going. Our transfer means a whole new rental agreement with someone else's name on it...and their signatures, etc...
