What is the law for storage unit auctions?

Question Details:

I had just won an auction for a storage unit and did not realize until after paying for the unit and being able to walk into it that they had a lot of rotten foods in boxes that rotted out the storage units flooring and a chest freezer that was filled with rotten meat. Is there any law that would cover this? Isn't it a health hazard to be auctioning off units like that? My interior of my SUV is ruined due to the smell of rotten meat since I had to transport it to the trash ( not being able to use their garbage ). I've spoken to all parties and no one wants to help out with any kind of refund.
