Dillingham Self Storage is making the decision to reinstate late fees and lockouts, effective September 1st, 2022. During the public emergency of the COVID-19 pandemic, we waived late fees and potential lockouts in the case of unpaid rent. We were happy to temporarily remove these policies for the last two years given the fact that the pandemic induced financial insecurity and stress for many of our tenants. We did not want to put an added burden or lose tenants during that time of uncertainty due to financial reasons. Our goal is not to lose tenants! However, given the return to normal business operations, we are confident that we can implement these policies without harming tenants.
New Policies at Dillingham Self Storage
However, in light of recent openings and relaxation of covid constraints, we are deciding to reinstate these policies. We have been communicating with current tenants about this policy change via letters, notices and phone calls. Although we are excited to be back in business with very relaxed covid constraints, we also need to return these procedures to our operations that were lifted because of the pandemic.
We are proud that we are one of the last storage facilities to reinstate these policies in bringing back late fees, and we’re thankful for our Dillingham Self Storage tenants who have been loyal to us over the last two years! It has not been an easy decision to reinstate these old policies.
