The relationship between the lessor and the lessee shall be that of landlord and tenant in the absence of a written contract to the contrary, notwithstanding that the lessor prescribes the hours of entry into its repositories, retains and requires the use of a preparation or guard key and in the case of vault storage reserves the right to change the space occupied by lessees' property or documents from time to time. The rights, duties, powers and privileges of the lessor in the transaction shall be that of landlord and for all purposes the lessee shall be deemed by law to be in possession of the repository and the contents thereof.
