Duty of warehouser if charges paid before sale
7 (1) At any time before the goods are sold, any person claiming an interest or right of possession in the goods may pay the warehouser the amount necessary to satisfy the lien, including the expenses incurred in serving notices and advertising and preparing for the sale up to the time of the payment.
(2) The warehouser must deliver the goods to the person making the payment if that person is the person entitled to the possession of the goods on payment of the warehouser's charges on them, otherwise the warehouser must retain possession of the goods according to the terms of the contract of deposit.
I am wondering, when the auction closes on the locker and before I can make the payment at the facility, if the person who owned the contents before walks in and pays his late charges, if I am then out that locker now. Because how I read our Warehouseman's Lien Act the unit is sold once the time runs out and therefor the bids have been accepted. The highest bidder is the winner. 7(1) says" if before the goods are sold" A concluded auction would mean sold to the highest bidder? Or am I wrong?
