Storage unit eviction could be caused by non-payment or a violation of the lease agreement. Either way, it's usually the last resort storage facility owners/operators use to protect their business.
If necessary, the storage unit eviction process should be initiated legally and professionally. The storage facility must legally give the tenant a notice and/or warning before following through with the eviction. In most states, the storage facility must provide the tenant with a 10-day notice to vacate the storage unit documenting the reason for violating the lease agreement. The notice also includes a deadline by which the tenant must resolve the violation. The resolution can be one of many choices, depending on the violation.
If the violation isn't resolved, the storage facility then has the legal right to continue with the eviction process. By law, all states require the storage facility to file a lawsuit against the tenant in the appropriate court to begin eviction proceedings. If all legal requirements are met, a judge will authorize the eviction by issuing a court order.
