- the Storage Fee being the amount indicated in the Agreement or any reasonable increase as notified to the Storer by the The FO will provide no less than 28 days’ notice of any intended increase. Where the Storer objects to the increase they may, before the expiration of the 28 days’ notice, terminate the Agreement and move out giving no less than 24 hours’ notice. The usual notice period is waived. The Storage Fee is payable in advance and it is the Storer’s responsibility to make payment directly to the FO on time, and in full, throughout the period of storage. Any Storage Fees paid by direct deposit/direct credit (“Direct Payment”) will not be credited to the Storer’s account unless the Storer identifies the Direct Payment clearly and as reasonably directed by the FO.

The Storer acknowledges and agrees that it is reasonable for the FO to make any such increases as part of the ordinary operation of its business.
- If the Storer only pays part of the amount owing in fees, it does not affect the Storer’s obligation to pay the balance of the amount to the FO. Acceptance of a part-payment is not a waiver of any kind of any right the FO may have under the Agreement.

In the event that the Storer cannot be located, excess funds will be deposited with the Public Trustee or equivalent authority.
