Resident owners can often be frustrated with the overgrown vegetation of their neighbor’s property. Many property owners live out of the area; some neighbors don’t have the capability or funds to maintain their property or hire someone. As a means of dealing with this issue, the South Lake Fire Safe Council created the Neighbor Helping Neighbor liability form, so that you and your neighbor can take action. As stated in the form “The intent of the Right of Entry for Fuels Reduction is to give mutually agreeable neighboring property owners a process to enter on another’s property to do fuels reduction and have it memorialized so as not to trespass on neighbor’s property, but to enter the owner’s private property with the owner’s permission.” This form was designed with the help from legal counsel, and is available for public use in Lake County, but the responsibility for making sure it fits the need in each individual case is the sole responsibility of the property owners involved.
SLFSC is the caretaker of the submitted documents. The documents are held indefinitely on file. If a conflict arises between the parties and the completed document is required, it is our intention to be able to provide a copy of the
completed document to the individual parties.
