C. RENTAL PERIOD AND SECURITY DEPOSIT:
The minimum rental period is one (1) full month. All leases expire on the last day of each rental period. The management may terminate said lease at his option if Tenant is not in full compliance with the terms of this Lease, subject to Management's approval. TENANT'S FAILURE TO VACATE THE PREMISES, REMOVE THEIR LOCK and/or RETURN PROVIDED LOCK & KEY(S) ON THE LAST DAY OF THE MONTH AUTOMATICALLY RENEWS THE LEASE FOR ONE (1) MONTH. Abandonment of the Unit by Tenant prior to the end of a month shall not entitle Tenant to a refund of rent. After termination of the original rental period (when the Rental Agreement is operating on a monthly basis), Landlord reserves the right to adjust the rent to current rates. A returned check (NSF) is subject to a charge of $25.00, which shall be considered part of the rent. Unit shall be in default and over locked by Management, until amount of the returned check, returned check charge, and late fee due are paid in full. Payment must be made by cash, or money order. All tenants must pay by cash, check or money order. All tenants in default or tenants having prior returned checks (NSF) must pay by cash or money order. The Monthly Rental rate, deposit amount, late charge, cut-lock, and returned check charge are each subject to increase on day 1 of each month. Tenant shall be given thirty (30) days written notice of such increases and this Lease shall be deemed to be so altered if the Tenant continues his occupancy beyond the effective date of the increase. Notice shall be deemed given when Management deposits first-class mail, postage prepaid to Tenant at address given on this Lease or official change of address. Tenant shall apprise Management of any change in his/her mailing address in writing within twenty (20) days of such change. A new Lease does not have to be executed for any new rental rate increases.
D. TERMINATION OF RENTAL AGREEMENT:
Upon the termination of the Rental Agreement, for whatever reason, Tenant shall provide Landlord with Tenant’s current address, in writing. Tenant shall return and deliver up the Unit on the day of termination of this Agreement, for whatever reason, in a “broom clean” and in as good condition as it was when the Rental Agreement commenced, reasonable wear and tear excepted. Landlord agrees to deposit in the United States Mail the Security Deposit within twenty-one (21) days of the termination of this contract, provided the Tenant has notified Landlord within 24 hours of vacating the Unit, and Landlord is satisfied that (1) all sums due hereunder are current; and (2) the Unit is in a “broom clean” condition and (3) the Unit is not damaged. The Landlord reserves the right to deduct from the Security Deposit all reasonable costs and expenses due to damage and/or neglect.
THERE ARE NO PRORATED RENT REFUNDS IN THE EVENT THE UNIT IS VACATED BEFORE DAY 1 OF THE MONTH. If the unit is vacated on or after day 1 of the month, a full month's rent is due.
E. FAILURE TO PAY RENT:
Rental payments are due on day 1 of each month without demand. Payments made after day 7 of the month are subject to a $20.00 Late Fee. Mailed payments must be postmarked by day 7 of the month to avoid the Late Fee. If rental payments are not paid in full within seven (7) days of the due date, Management will declare the Tenant in default. No notice need be given of default. MANAGEMENT DOES NOT SEND OUT BILLINGS FOR MONTHLY RENTAL CHARGES.
The Management may, at their option, take possession of the goods in the Storage Unit on or after the 7th day of the month if full payment is not received. Taking possession of the goods shall consist of over-locking the Storage Unit door to prevent Tenant's access to the Storage Unit until all rent, late fees, NSF, and miscellaneous charges are paid in full.
IF IN DEFAULT, A LIEN IS PLACED ON YOUR PROPERTY AND THE CONTENTS OF THE UNIT WILL BE SOLD TO SATISFY THE LIEN PER WIS STATS 704.90. ONLY A PAYMENT IN THE FULL AMOUNT OF THE LIEN WILL BE ACCEPTED TO SATISFY THE LIEN. NO PARTIAL PAYMENTS ACCEPTED. Tenants will be charged $50 in legal and administrative fees.
In the event Management is required to obtain the services of an attorney to enforce any of the provisions of this Lease, Tenant agrees to pay in addition to the sums due hereunder, an additional amount as and for attorney's fees and cost incurred.
Management will have the right in the event of an emergency to enter the storage unit with whatever reasonable force is necessary. They may at their discretion, deny access to premises in case of inclement weather or emergencies.
Any right granted herein to Management may be exercised by Management's Rental Agent or other representative or agent.
