I live in Columbia SC and live in a home owners association that has riverfront access. We commonly have people trespass and use the riverfront to fish camp etc, Does posting a No Trespassing Sign "add to" or "limit" a persons right to "Sue" in the event of an accident? We currently do not have no trespassing signs and are considering adding them - Any pros or cons of posting a no trespassing sign?

I am a law school graduate currently awaiting Bar results. What I offer is mere information, not to be construed as forming an attorney client relationship.


It depends on who has rights (riparian?navigable?) to the riverfront. Get a land survey and see where your property ends and public property begins. Putting up a no trespassing sign when it might be public property will serve to open you up to liability.

Survey before you leap! ; - )

hope this helps.
