Property Owner Permission and Liability Release Agreement

Recommended Posts

DPS Ammonite

You might have trouble getting a land owner to sign your hold harmless agreement since it also holds harmless the actions of the collector for any damage they do on the landowners property. 


“I agree to hold the collector(s) and their other chosen collecting partners listed above harmless from and forever discharge them from any and all liability for damages, injury, or loss which
may be sustained as a result of their entry into the private property described in this agreement.”

Alright, that can be modified. What do you recommend?

Eliminate the hold harmless part for harm done by the collectors.

Seems like a good idea, for those property owners who are worried about such things, in your litigious American society! ;) (which it appears to be increasingly up here too) On the other hand it might turn some of them off. If I understand human nature (debatable), some people might not like the idea of being bound in some formal agreement, and refuse to sign, whereas they might easily give informal (verbal) permission. I may be wrong, but I've met people like that in other areas of endeavor. Upon approaching a landowner, maybe the informal method should be tried first, then if it looks like it's going in the legalistic direction, pull out this form.

If you could pare it down to one page, that might make it less intimidating, and also simpler/more practical, than 3 pages.

I don’t want to tell anybody that they need a permission form or that they must use one. I just want one to be available for those seeking one. I put it in a big font to make it seem less like the fine print in things like buying cars, Apple’s terms of service, etc. It can be easily modified as it should be a font most devices understand.

 

Here is the one page format if anyone wants it:

I knew you weren't saying everyone must use this, I'm just thinking about the potential reaction you might get when you shove such a thing under someone's nose!

Yeah, I understand that and I agree. Try an informal way first but if they are the type that want reassurance they won’t be sued if anything goes wrong, this form is available for that occasion.
