+TOW Vehicle Posted January 28, 2010 Share Posted January 28, 2010 What constitutes having permission to come onto private property in the absence of the owner? Cache Owners say they have permission to place a cache but is there really any proof of that if, and when you are confronted by Law Enforcement? Many of the local caches aren’t even marked or, have any thing inside that describe what they are. Trespass laws aside, there are other laws as well that require the person to notify the owner in different situations as to his presence. In my experience so far, not many local cache owners are actually getting the owners permission to place caches. Much more, they are not clearly marking the caches as such. This puts a heavy burden of proof on the cacher should they get cited for trespass or just questioned during an investigation of their presence. Should a cacher question the cache owner out-right before attempting the find and report it if permission has not been granted? Maybe a letter of intent from the cache owner to the property owner notifying them and asking for a signature would suffice? Quote Link to comment
