Message:

we just purchased a new snowblower to keep in the shed of our triplex. One of the tenants will be using it to do the sidewalks and parking area. Should I have them sign some sort of waiver? If so, any suggestions of wording. --98.179.xxx.xxx

Unless they own & operate it themselves there isn't any type of waiver that will offer you any real protection. --96.237.xx.xx

Others should have better ideas.

But I think you could have some liability no matter what agreement you have.

But rental places have already figured out the best agreement o use to limit this.

Goggle and download a copy of a rental agreement form. Even one for a lawnmower.

Then just change it fit for a snowblower with no charges to rent it to the tenant. --75.182.xx.xxx

I hire a crew that moves snow and let them bring their own equipment. If theirs isn't operating that day I let them use mine which isn't a good idea but it has worked so far. --73.248.xxx.xxx

I don't like hiring the tenants to do anything. If they don't do it well, they'll create liability for you. I hire a company to deal with removing snow and ice. --209.122.xx.xxx

Wow!

I have a two family 15 miles, away where the guy on one side has kept both sides free of ice and snow for 6 years with no problems so far. Now you have got me thinking... Can someone be more specific about the risks involved - and liability.

Thank you

Charlie --173.48.xxx.xxx

Would there be any liability or risk if the landlord provides and maintains a snow blower and then hires a kid in the neighborhood to use it to do the plowing?

snowblower (by AllyM [NJ]) Posted on: Dec 8, 2018 7:33 AM
Message:

The liability includes slipping on ice. Here in NJ once we disturb snow we are liable for any falls. But we are required to move it off public walks in 24 hours after snow stops falling. A kid running a snowblower is risking the kid sticking his hand in the thing to clear a snow clog. Not enough smarts at that age. If the tenant falls or hurts himself or herself while working for you then can make you pay workers compensation possibly. It's one thing for them to own their own shovel and shovel out their car but when you start asking them to clear the whole driveway for others or the main walk, they you are an employer. --73.248.xxx.xxx

Message:

WOW! I have been including a detailed clause in all my leases requiring that my tenants keep their driveways and walkways clear of any ice and snow, which was drawn up by an attorney... Should I now assume this does not protect me from related liability?

Thank you for any and all responses.

Mac --173.48.xxx.xxx

Mac,

You would be covered if the place is a SFH. If it is a small MFH, you just created a liability scenario because the resident was supplied tools and probable directive as when to complete the task.

The IRS has a 21 point test on this topic........and if they are employees - then you have to report wages on a W-2 vs a 1099.

I am wondering if the resident had a renters insurance policy that named the owner as additional insured - if there would be liability protection for the owner. Good question --72.23.xxx.xx
