I have a month to month storage lease. 3 days after i paid rent, the property manager emailed me & said my lease was being terminated because i violated paragraph 5 of my lease & i needed to vacate by COB in 2days. I read thru paragraph 5 (which only states you cant store parishables, explosives, & things of that nature). I asked her to detail how i had violated anything & she simply stated: the notice to vacate was non-negotiable! I later found out that she no longer wanted me as a tenant because my EX is accused of breaking into several different units, several different times, on many occasions. I wasn't involved with what he did, they even said they saw him come with Another girl on camera & do it. He doesn't have my key or access code or even my permission to be there. I even called the cops on him the last time he came to the place_SO, are they allowed to change the lock on my unit, suspend my access code & tell me to vacate While still holding my rent??? Or can i just go in behind someone else's walk up access code, go to my unit & break off their lock to access my things?
Get your property out
Deal with what they may owe you I small claims court
The risk of insisting on the continued storage is storage is that they will empty your unit and discard the property and make an annoying situation much worse
You could fight her, maybe get one months rent back, but the time wasted wouldn’t make up for it. Either way, you’ll still have to empty the unit, so empty the unit at a time set up with management and move on.
