Land

PostBy: Uglysquirrel On: Fri Oct 07, 2011 7:37 pm

Been looking at some raw land in Maine, York County near the NH border.

Looking at it for getting away from the rat race a few weeks a year, suggesting I would not be on the land most of the time.

This brings up some questions regarding an owner's responsibilities for taking care of the land.

What are those responsibilities ? Liabilities? Is it usual to put no tresspassing signs up ?

I may go up in the next couple weeks, understand I should wear orange this time of year, ya know ?

Any comments appreciated. PM's as well.

The only responsibilities that I know of is to pay your taxes or face the town taking the land. We have a law in Maine that says something to the effect that anyone that comes on your land without permission does so at their own risk. You can not be held liable for them getting hurt. (Unless of course you purposely left some sort of booby trap). I see no reason to post it unless you don't want people hunting, but I think even that may have changed. It used to be hunters could hunt land unless posted, but I think now they need permission. Signs will not stop idiots from dumping something if it's convenient to do so. If the land has a driveway I might suggest a gate. People will take advantage of a place to get rid of an old washing machine.

One thing about land, they are not making any more, what's here is here. And with the poor economy, it may be the best time to buy right now, and the best time to sell gold and silver. Why people want to buy when the price is high beats me.

Native Americans believe that we are only caretakers of these gifts that the Creator has given us. Take that for what it's worth to ya. I think Freddy covered your concerns. For the record--sometimes locals get kinda pissy when flatlanders post their land & only visit occasionally. Just food for thought ;)

Real important--meet your neighbors--hopefully they aren't real close to where you'll be and there won't be many of them. ;)

What they all said.

And 1 thing to keep in mind, you must always have an extra bedroom available for any coal burner who happens to be traveling through the neighborhood... :rofl: And a supply of cold beverages......... :beer: :cheers: :shots:
