    Example of landowner permission form

    Anyone have an example of a permission form for a landowner to sign allowing a multi-use trail across his/her property?? I need to make one and figure it would be easier if I had an example of one that already works.

    fattirewilly at yahoo dot com if you need to email it.

    Thanks!!!

    Wouldn't a permission form look like a recreational easement document? Or is that something different? I would think you'd want to get a friendly biking lawyer to donate what you need.

    I don't know what state you're in but you should be able to find something here:

    Googled "landowner permission form" and got a nice one pager put together by an IMBA club in Vermont. It contained a legaleze paragraph reference Vermont recreational use code. I swapped in a paragraph of the Virginia recreational use code. I'll see how it goes.

    I have a couple of easement docs, but its five pages of legal crap that if read at a glance would make me feel like I'm giving away the farm. I don't want to read it and I don't think shoving a similar doc in front of someone who has verbally already agreed to give permission will help. Thoughts? I've never done this before...

    As much as I'm with you in that a handshake and a paragraph ought to do it, in these days ( at least in the states) you almost have to cya with a review by someone understands legalese and the bigger issues involved. All it takes is one incident that goes sideways to find all the legal things that should have been dealt with.

    Glad we could be of help. That is the reason why we posted the Landowner Permission form, so others wouldn't have to reinvent the wheel, so to speak.

    We also should have our newly signed agreement with the State of Vermont posted at some point, as a template for other states.

    Lots of info on how to start a bike club or Chapter and other good stuff, feel free to borrow our work.

    As for easements, they tend to take a lot of time to pursue and cultivate. Expect that it will take years of positive interactions with a landowner to even get to a point where you can ask for one.

    Ride on!

    Got the form signed! One down, one to go.

    I could tell the landowner slowed up over the legal part. I informed him that the info was in the doc to show that "we" know about the law as well as he does. He thought it to be a good idea and made himself a copy for his files.
