Wisconsin Court of Appeals
Consumer Protection — storage units
Kenneth Erdmann appeals a judgment awarding $2525 plus costs to Village Storage of Oconomowoc LLC for unpaid rent and late fees on a self-service storage unit. Erdmann contends that the circuit court erred when it found that he orally agreed to modify an existing rental agreement with Village Storage to add him as a co-lessee. He also argues that the circuit court erred in finding that Village Storage’s notice of its lien rights stated in capital letters in the rental agreement satisfied Wis. Stat. § 704.90(3)(b). We affirm as the court had sufficient evidence that Erdmann and Village Storage orally modified the rental agreement and as Village Storage’s capitalized notice substantially complied with the statute. This opinion will not be published.
