Title 12 : Court Procedure

Chapter 203 : LIMITATIONS ON LANDOWNER LIABILITY

(Cite as: 12 V.S.A. § 5791)
  • § 5791. Purpose

    The purpose of this chapter is to encourage owners to make their land and water available to the public for no consideration for recreational uses by clearly establishing a rule that an owner shall have no greater duty of care to a person who, without consideration, enters or goes upon the owner's land for a recreational use than the owner would have to a trespasser. (Added 1997, No. 110 (Adj. Sess.), § 1.)
