Are You A Landowner?

Not if you occupy the house/dwelling as a living space!

“Chapter 38A.

Landowner Liability.

§ 38A-1. Purpose.

The purpose of this Chapter is to encourage owners of land to make land and water areas available to the public at no cost for educational and recreational purposes by limiting the liability of the owner to persons entering the land for those purposes. (1995, c. 308, s. 1.)

§ 38A-2. Definitions.

(3) “Land” means real property, land, and water, but does not mean a dwelling and the property immediately adjacent to and surrounding such dwelling that is generally used for activities associated with occupancy of the dwelling as a living space.”

ALWAYS read the definitions. Sneaky.
