This Rental Agreement, (hereinafter called “Agreement”), made and entered into this date as set forth above, by and between the self- service storage operator identified above as agent for Owner, (hereinafter called “Owner”) and Occupant identified above, (hereinafter called “Occupant”), whose last known address is set forth above. For the consideration herein stated, the Owner agrees to let Occupant use and occupy a space as listed above (hereinafter called “Space”) in the self-service storage facility (hereinafter called “Facility”), situated in the city and county listed above in the state of Georgia. Said Space is to be occupied and used for the purposes specified herein and subject to the conditions set forth, beginning on the Rental Agreement date listed above and continuing month to month until terminated.
TERMS AND CONDITIONS
1. Rent. The Occupant agrees to pay the Owner, as payment for the use of the Space and improvements thereon, the Monthly Rent listed above. Monthly installments are payable in advance at the Owner’s office on or before the monthly “Rental Payment Due Date” listed above, in the amount of the Monthly Rent listed above and a like amount each month hereafter, until the termination of this Agreement. The Owner acknowledges receipt of the sum set forth above showing payment through the “Rent Paid To Date” listed above. If any monthly installment is not paid by the seventh calendar day after the Rent Due Date, or if any check in payment is dishonored by the financial institution on which it is drawn, Occupant shall be deemed to be in default. The Occupant's failure to perform any of its obligations under the terms and conditions of this Agreement or the Occupant’s breach of the peace shall also constitute a default hereunder. The Occupant agrees and understands that partial payments made to cure a default for nonpayment of rent will not delay or stop foreclosure and sale of Occupant's personal property (hereinafter called “Property”). The tender of partial payments shall not serve to waive or avoid the legal effect of prior notices given to Occupant. Only full payment on the Occupant's account prior to the published auction date will stop a scheduled sale of the Property. Owner accepts checks, money orders and credit cards. Cash is accepted for walk in payments only during business hours. DO NOT PUT CASH IN ANY MAIL SLOT OR DROP BOX. A payment made on an account advertised for public sale must be made in cash only.
2. Denial of Access. If rent is not paid within seven (7) days of the Rent Due Date, Owner may, without notice, deny the Occupant access to the Property located at the Facility. Access will be denied to any party other than the Occupant who does not retain gate code and key to lock on Space or has not supplied Owner with written authorization from the Occupant to enter the Space. Otherwise, only a court order will be sufficient to permit access by others. Occupant’s access to the Facility may also be conditioned in any manner deemed reasonably necessary by Owner to maintain order on the premises. Such measures may include, but are not limited to, restricting hours of operation, requiring verification of occupant’s identity and inspecting vehicles that enter the premises. Additionally, if Occupant is renting more than one Space at any given time, default on one rented Space shall constitute default on all rented Spaces, entitling Owner to deny access to Occupant to all rented Spaces.
3. Fees. Concurrently with the execution of this Rental Agreement, Occupant shall pay to Owner a nonrefundable New Account Administration Fee in the amount listed above. A bill for the monthly rent will not be sent, however, Occupant may elect to pay the additional monthly fee listed above as Invoice Fee to receive a monthly bill. Occupant acknowledges that late payment of monthly rent will cause Owner to incur costs not contemplated by this Agreement, the exact amount of such costs being extremely difficult to fix. Therefore, if any monthly rent is received after seven (7) days from the Rental Due Date, Occupant shall pay to Owner an additional sum as listed above as a Late Fee #1 for each month rent is past due, such amount being considered liquidated damages. Furthermore, if any monthly rent payment is received after twenty one (21) days from the Rental Due Date, an additional Late Fee #2 as listed above will be charged. The parties agree that these Late Fees represent a fair and reasonable estimate of the costs the Owner will incur by reason of late payment by Occupant. Owner does not waive any rights under the law for non-payment of rent. Said Late Fees are due and payable without demand from Owner. If any check is dishonored for any reason, said Late Fees shall be due and payable in addition to a return check fee listed above as an NSF Fee. If Occupant's Property is processed for sale at public auction, Occupant shall be responsible for a minimum public auction processing fee listed above as a Sale Fee. If Occupant’s lock must be cut by owner, Occupant shall be responsible for Lock Cut Fee listed above. Other fees charged to Occupant may be contained in Addendums to this Agreement. All service charges, administrative fees, default notice fees, late fees, court costs and attorneys’ fees together with all other fees and charges set forth in this Agreement incurred by Owner in connection with the enforcement of the Agreement shall be deemed “additional rent” payable by Occupant to Owner as provided in the Agreement
4. Cleaning/Maintenance Fund. Occupant further agrees to pay the sum of one month’s fees, which shall be used as a clean-up and maintenance fund, and is to be used, if required, for the repair of any damage done to the Space and to clean up the Space at the termination of the Agreement. In the event that the Space is left in good state of repair, and in broom-swept condition, then this amount shall be refunded to the Occupant. However, it is agreed to between the parties that the Owner may set off any claims it may have against the Occupant from this fund.
5. Owner's Right to Enter. In cases where the Owner considers it necessary to enter the Space for purposes of examining the Space for violations of this Agreement or conditions in the Space, or for making repairs or alterations thereto, or to otherwise comply with this Agreement, the Occupant agrees that the Owner, or the Owner’s representative, shall have the right without notice to enter into the Space and to remove contents to another space, and continue to store such contents at the sole cost and expense of the Occupant.
6. Use of Space; Compliance with Law. The Space named herein shall be used by the Occupant solely for the purpose of storing any personal property belonging to the Occupant. The Occupant agrees not to store any explosives or any other flammable, odorous, noxious, corrosive, hazardous or pollutant goods in the Space or elsewhere on the Facility which would cause danger or nuisance to the Space or any other portion of the Facility. The Occupant agrees that the Facility and the Occupant’s Property will not be used for any unlawful purposes or contrary to any law, ordinance, regulation, fire code or health code and the Occupant agrees not to commit waste, nor to create a nuisance, nor alter, nor affix signs on the Space or anywhere on the Facility, and will keep the Space and the Facility in good condition during the term of this Agreement. The Occupant agrees that the Space is not appropriate for the storage of jewels, furs, heirlooms, art works, collectibles or other irreplaceable items having special sentimental or emotional value to the Occupant and Occupant agrees not to store said items. The Occupant hereby waives any claim for sentimental or emotional value for the Occupant's Property that is stored in the Space or on the Facility. There shall be NO HABITABLE OCCUPANCY of the Space by humans or pets of any kind for any period whatsoever and violation of these prohibitions shall be grounds for immediate termination of this Agreement. The storage of food or any perishable goods is strictly prohibited. If hazardous substances are stored, used, generated, or disposed of in the Space or on the Facility, or if the Space or the Facility shall become contaminated in any manner for which the Occupant is directly or indirectly responsible, the Occupant shall indemnify and hold the Owner harmless from and against any and all claims, damages, fines, judgments, penalties, costs, liabilities, or losses, and any and all sums incurred or paid for settlement of any such claims, including any attorney's fees, consultant and expert fees, resulting from or arising out of any contamination by the Occupant, whether incurred during or after the lease term. Occupant agrees not to conduct any business out of the Space and further agrees that the Space is not to be used for any type of work shop, for any type of repairs, or for any sales, renovations, decoration, painting, or other contracting. The Occupant will indemnify and hold the Owner harmless from and against any and all manner of claims for damages or lost Property or personal injury and costs, including attorneys’ fees arising from the Occupant's lease of the Space on the Facility or from any activity, work or thing done, permitted or suffered by the Occupant in the Space or on or about the Facility.
7. Condition and Alteration of Space. Occupant assumes responsibility for having examined the Space and Facility and hereby accepts it as being in good order and condition. Occupant understands that all unit sizes are approximate and enters into this Agreement without reliance on the estimated size of the storage Space. Should Occupant damage or depreciate the Space, or make alterations or improvements without the prior consent of the Owner, or require the Owner to incur costs to clean the Space upon termination, then all costs necessary to restore the Space to its prior condition shall be borne by Occupant. Owner has the right to declare any such costs to repair as “rent” and non-payment of said costs to entitle Owner to deny Occupant access to the Space.
8. Limitation of Value. The Occupant agrees that in no event shall the total value of all Property stored be deemed to exceed $5,000.00 unless the Owner has given permission in writing for the occupant to store Property exceeding such value. The Occupant agrees that the maximum value for any claim or suit by the Occupant including but not limited to any suit which alleges wrongful or improper foreclosure or sale of the contents of a storage unit is $5,000.00. Nothing in this section shall be deemed to create any liability on the part of the Owner to the Occupant for any loss or damages to the Occupant's Property regardless of cause.
9. Termination. This Agreement shall continue from month to month unless the Occupant or Owner delivers to the other party a written notice of its intention to terminate the Agreement at least five (5) days prior to the end of the then current rental period. Owner may immediately terminate Occupant’s lease if Occupant is in breach of the Agreement. Upon termination of this Agreement, the Occupant shall remove all personal Property from the Space (unless such Property is subject to the Owners’ lien rights as referenced herein), and shall deliver possession of the Space to the Owner on the day of termination. If the Occupant fails to fully remove its Property from the Space within the time required, the Owner, at its option, may without further notice or demand, either directly or through legal process, reenter the Occupant's Space and remove all Property therefrom without being deemed guilty in any manner of trespassing or conversion. All items, including boxes and trash left in the Space or on the Property after vacating will be deemed to be of no value to the Occupant and will be discarded by the Owner at the expense of the Occupant. This Agreement shall automatically terminate if the Occupant abandons the Space. The Occupant shall be deemed to have abandoned the Space if the Occupant has removed the contents of the Space and/or has removed the Occupant’s locking device from the Space and is not current in all obligations hereunder. Abandonment shall allow the Owner to remove all contents of the Space for disposal. Occupant hereby waives and releases any claims or actions against Owner for disposal of personal Property resulting from Occupant’s abandonment. Rent prepaid for any period in which the Occupant moves out early shall not be refunded.

Such sale shall be considered incidental to the self-storage business and no license shall be required.
(3) If no one purchases the property at the public sale and if Owner has complied with the foregoing procedures, Owner may otherwise dispose of the property and shall notify Occupant of the action taken. Any sale or disposition of the personal property shall be held at the self-storage facility or at the nearest suitable place to where the personal property is held or stored.
(4) Before any sale or other disposition of personal property pursuant to this Agreement, Occupant may pay the amount necessary to satisfy the lien and the reasonable expenses incurred, and thereby redeem the personal property and thereafter Owner shall have no liability to any person with respect to such personal property.
(5) A Purchaser in good faith of the personal property sold to satisfy Owner's lien takes the property free of any rights of persons against whom the lien was valid, despite noncompliance by Owner with the requirements of this Agreement.
(6) In the event of a sale, Owner may satisfy his or her lien from the proceeds of the sale. Owner shall hold the balance of the proceeds, if any, for Occupant or any notified secured interest holder. If not claimed within two years of the date of sale, the balance of the proceeds shall be disposed of in accordance with Article 5 of Chapter 12 of Title 44, the "Disposition of Unclaimed Property Act" and as it may be amended. In no event shall Owner's liability exceed the proceeds of the sale. If the Rental Agreement contains a limit on the value of property stored in Occupant’s storage space, the limit shall be deemed to be the maximum value of the property stored in that space. If the property upon which the lien is claimed is a motor vehicle, trailer, or watercraft and rent and other charges related to the property remain unpaid or unsatisfied for 60 days following the maturity of the obligation to pay rent, Owner may have the property towed in lieu of foreclosing on the lien.
