PROPERTY - ALABAMA SELF-SERVICE STORAGE ACT - PROCEDURE FOR SELLING PROPERTY - CANYON DEVELOPMENT CO., INC. V. HOLCUM STORAGE

Canyon Development Co., Inc. v. Holcum Storage, [Ms. 2110541, Aug. 10, 2012] ___ So. 3d ___ (Ala. Civ. App. 2012). This opinion interprets for the first time "the Alabama Self-Service Storage Act, Ala. Code 1975 ¤¤ 8-15-32 to 38." After Canyon Development went into default on its payments for two storage units, Holcum Storage sold the property in the units. It did not follow the provisions of ¤ 8-15-34, but the Court of Civil Appeals holds that these are not mandatory statutory-lien requirements. Because the contract gave Holcum Storage a contractual lien that did not require it to follow the notice and other provisions in the statute, "Holcum Storage did not breach the terms of the rental agreement."
