Waiver/Release form

My condo association is asking that I have each of my students and parents sign a waiver/release form in case one of them trips on the sidewalk on the way to my front door and gets hurt.

Has anyone ever created such a form that I could use?

This seems a bit odd. Do they ask all visitors to sign such a form?

Annette ~ I agree with Jennifer to some extent, but you are running a business in your condo and that's what concerns the association. Since the sidewalk is probably the association's property, not yours, they're concerned about lawsuits in case of a slip and fall. HOA's can shut down a home based business, so I would comply with the CC&R's, and even reasonable extra requests. Here is some wording on a document used by a school—I hope it helps:

Liability Release:
I hereby waive, release, and discharge any and all claims for damages for death, personal injury, disability or property damage of any kind which may hereafter accrue to above minor or myself as a result of his/her participation in school activities. This release is expressly intended to discharge in advance Creekside Christian School, and any employees, agents,and volunteers from and against any and all liability arising out of or connected in any way with minor and/or family members participation in school activities.
Parent Name: _________________________________________ Date: ___________

Signature: _____________________________________________

I have it noted in my home owners insurance policy some how so I'm not responsible for such things. Good to have your back covered

I also have Renter's coverage w/ liability for that purpose. I needed it when a charter school required it in order to teach piano to their students. A copy of your coverage should be all that would be required.
