Release of Liability Agreement Checklist

Step 1: Gather Information

As you complete your release of liability agreement, you will need to provide certain relevant information. This includes the name and address of each party and the date your agreement should go into effect.

Step 2: Answer Key Questions

Use the information you collected to complete the release of liability agreement. We make this easy by guiding you each step of the way and helping you to customize your document to match your specific needs. The questions and information we present to you dynamically change depending on your answers and the state selected. Click below to get started.


Step 3: Review and Sign

It is always important to read your document thoroughly to ensure it matches your needs and is free of errors and omissions. After completing the questionnaire, you can make textual changes to your document by downloading it in Microsoft Word. If no changes are needed, you can simply download the PDF version and sign. These downloads are available by navigating to the Documents section of your account dashboard.

When signing the document, be sure to follow any additional instructions related to signing and witnessing the document. Any such instructions will either be located next to the signature line or in the instructions attached at the end of the document.

Although using a notary is not required, it is recommended that you do so to ensure that you can prove the authenticity of the document. When using a notary, be sure to wait to sign the document until they are present.

Step 4: Distribute and Store Copies

At a minimum, all parties that sign the document should receive a copy once it is fully executed (everyone has signed). Other interested parties may need or want copies as well. Be sure to store your copy in a safe location. It is a good idea to keep both a physical and electronic copy.

Step 5: Periodically Review and Update

It is easy to forget the ins and outs of your release of liability agreement. Periodically reviewing it will help you stay familiar with any responsibilities or requirements so that you can determine when it needs changes or additions.

Over time you may need to make changes and updates to the contract. Using a contract amendment allows you to specify your changes without having to create an entirely new agreement. This is helpful when you only need to make a few changes instead of a complete overhaul of the language.

Should you decide to create a completely new release of liability agreement, LegalNature makes this process easy by saving your answers to the original agreement within the questionnaire.

Step 6: Complete Related Documents

Completing an arbitration agreement will help ensure the parties are fully protected. For example, if your current agreement does not include a dispute resolution process, then you should use an arbitration agreement to create an agreed upon process for existing or future disputes between the parties. LegalNature's agreement helps you do this by allowing you to choose between common structures for resolving disputes.
