3901. Definitions

As used in this

chapter, the following terms shall have the following meanings:

(1) "Last

known address" means that address provided by the occupant in the rental

agreement or the address provided by the occupant in a subsequent written

notice of a change of address.


"Occupant" means a person, successor, assignee, agent, or

representative entitled to the use of storage space in a self-storage facility

under a rental agreement to the exclusion of others.


"Owner" means the owner, operator, lessor, or sublessor of a

self-storage facility, an agent, or any other person authorized by the owner to

manage the facility or to receive rent from an occupant under a rental



"Personal property" means movable property not affixed to land, and

includes goods, merchandise, and household items.

(5) "Rental

agreement" means any written agreement that establishes or modifies the

terms, conditions, rules, or any other provision concerning the use and

occupancy of a self-storage facility.


"Self-storage facility" means any real property designed and used for

the purpose of renting or leasing individual storage space to occupants who are

to have access to such space for the purpose of storing and removing personal

property. A self-storage facility is not a "warehouse" as used in

Article 7 of the Uniform Commercial Code (U.C.C.) as codified in Title 9A. If

an owner issues any warehouse receipt, bill of lading, or other document of

title for the personal property stored, the owner and the occupant are subject

to the U.C.C., and this act does not apply. (Added 2007, No. 183 (Adj. Sess.), §

2, eff. Jan. 1, 2009.)
