A few things to remember...

  • All units auctioned are done so pursuant to [48-11-1 to 48-11-19 NMSA 1978] or the "Self-Service Storage Lien Act.
  • The lien attaches as of the date the occupant goes into default and continues as long as the [storage] owner retains possession of the personal property and until the default is corrected, sale conducted, or property is otherwise disposed of to satisfy the lien.
  • Important dates to remember:
  • After being in default for 5 days, your access to the unit will be denied.
  • After being in default for 30 days continuously, we will open the unit and take a visual inventory of the items inside the unit along with photos of the units contents and send you the "Notice of Intent to Enforce a Lien" by certified mail at your last known address we have on file.
  • No action to sell the property as provided in the Self-Service Storage Lien Act shall be taken until the occupant has been in default continuously for a period of ninety days.
