Does anyone have renters sign a “release of liabilty” form?
I was having a discussion with my Realtor’s assistant (who is also a Realtor but apparently not a really great one but she is a good assistant) about them. Specifically, I provide each of my rental properties with a lawn mower so there is no real excuse for not keeping the lawn cut. She said her brother-in-law (who she descibed as “not the sharpest tool in the shed”) was a renter and turned the owner-provided mower upside down and put his fingers in the the area of the moving blade (yeah, I’m guessing her assessment of him is ‘right on the money’). She said that he was given a large settlement from the insurance company of the property owner.
