My brother-in-law is building swings/sandboxes in his neighborhood. They are approaching him after they see the one he built for my niece.
I'm doing internet research to draft a release that will mention the basics: Manufacture Defects, Design Defects, Failure to Warn, etc.
Will this cover it?
Is there any liability if no money is exchanged? He's doing some as trade for other goods or services.<HR></BLOCKQUOTE>
There's always liability when you do something like this. Have them pay at least $1.00, and have them sign the following form:
General Release of Liability
BE IT KNOWN, that _________________, (hereinafter referred to as "Releasor"), for and in consideration of the sum of __________________ ($_________) Dollars, and other valuable consideration received from or on behalf of _________________, (hereinafter referred to as "Releasee"), the receipt of which is hereby acknowledged, does hereby remise, release, acquit, satisfy, and forever discharge the said Releasee, of and from all manner of actions, causes of action, suits, debts, covenants, contracts, controversies, agreements, promises, claims and demands whatsoever, which said Releasor ever had, now has, or which any personal representative, successor, heir or assign of said Releasor, hereafter can, shall or may have, against said Releasee, by reason of any matter, cause or thing whatsoever, from the beginning of time to the date of this instrument.
IN WITNESS WHEREOF, the said Releasor has hereunto set hand and seal this __ day of _________________, 20__.
