Now, therefore, the parties hereto agree to and acknowledge the following:

That, it is possible that a loss to the PROPERTY could occur due to theft, damage (willful or otherwise), fire, water damage, or many other man-made or natural causes and occurrences, and that should any such loss occur, the OWNER will hold the BOARD harmless for the loss and will not consider the BOARD responsible for said loss nor will the OWNER seek to recover damages from the BOARD for said loss.

5. That, the OWNER will provide instructions for the disposition of the PROPERTY after the BOARD completes the examination and that the OWNER will be responsible for paying shipping fees according to the instructions.

6. That, the OWNER is aware that the BOARD is served by volunteers who are not paid for their services and that the examination of the PROPERTY may take a considerable amount of time to complete.

7. That, this agreement extends to claims the OWNER may make after the PROPERTY is disposed according to the OWNER’s instructions.

In witness whereof, the OWNER and the BOARD have each caused this Agreement to be executed by duly authorized representatives and they have hereunto set their hand, each under seal as of the date and year first written below.
