Do any of you require a Release and Waiver of Liability to be signed? I just found that a neighboring Inn has one and that seemed rather extreme. Isn't this what our liability insurance is for? My lawyer told me that you can still be sued even if you have such a waiver.
Guests age 18 and over MUST sign a liability form and children under 18 must be named and listed properly below.
Please be aware that in being a Guest at [Name of Inn] Bed & Breakfast, you do so at your own risk.
Please sign this Release From Liability, thereby indicating that you agree to release and hold harmless [Name of Inn] Bed & Breakfast, its owners, agents, and other guests from any liability.
