Real Estate Membership is for Real Estate Agents that currently manage a self storage facility on behalf of the owner.
Some storage facility owners are employing real estate agents to handle the bookings and day to day running of their facility. It is crucial that the real estate agents use the correct documentation, procedures and staff training when operating on your behalf for your benefit and theirs. Self storage is very different from accommodation bookings requiring specialised storer contracts and industry specific rules and regulations all of which are provided as part of our Real Estate membership.
Protect and grow your investment by insisting that your real estate agent become a member with the SSAA.
Standard, Managed and Mobile Self Storage Agreements have been drafted by the Association’s legal advisors to assist in protecting operators from liability in relation to customers and/or customer’s goods in storage. These agreements are regularly reviewed to reflect legislative changes that impact contractual clauses.
