What Happens To My Storage Unit If I Die?

June 15, 2020

Self-storage is a huge business in the US, taking up about 2.3 billion feet of space. And it seems that it is here to stay for a very long time.

Speaking about time… If you rented a storage unit and plan to keep it indefinitely, maybe you wonder what will happen to it if you die. There are several possible scenarios, depending on whether you have or haven`t provided access to someone else.

If you have given access to another person, things are simple: that person can go to the place, empty it out and close the contract.

On the other hand, if you didn`t give access to your storage unit to anyone, the executor of your estate can be granted access once they present the necessary paperwork.

There is also a third scenario if you never told anyone about your storage unit. In this case, someone close to you might find about it if they have access to your mail (facility managers typically send a letter before foreclosing) or to your credit card or bank statements, where there are listed your monthly or annual charges for the storage facility.
