The uhaul employee told us we were living in the container because we come alot, there's no limit to how much we come or how long we stay, but still we don't abuse it. He said" I'm gonna haft to evict you", I said "why"? He said, "don't play games I know what you guys do"?, i said "who is you guys and don't group me in with whoever your talking about my rent is paid and I haven't broken any rules so you shouldn't even be talking to me", he said, "that's it, I'm not gonna argue with you guys, your living in the container and that's against the rules, all you guys do it and your evicted". Who is you guys, black people or homeless people? Either way my rents paid and I have a place to live close by, that's why I can come every day, and what do you store in uhaul containers? clothes and furniture
Your contract probably contains language that says what you may and may not use the rental space for, and living there is (I assume) not allowed. Keeping up with your rental payments doesn't matter. If you're spending long amounts of time there, using the furniture as furniture, then you're turning it into a residence. They don't have to go through the process of eviction that a landlord would have to do for an apartment; they just have to point out that you're in violation of the storage agreement, and they can cancel it.
It sounds like you need to find a better place to spend your time.
If you're truly concerned and have no idea what the rental agent is talking about, then take a copy of your contract and meet with an attorney.
Be aware that this response does not create an attorney/client relationship. I live and work in Massachusetts and may or may not know the local laws where you live. I hope people find my responses not only helpful but somewhat entertaining as well. If you rely on this as legal advice, remember the old saying, "You get what you pay for."
