BASICS OF CONSERVATION EASEMENT
Conservation easements can be placed on real property to protect certain values like water quality, open space, historic character, and farmland. This presentation will focus on the mechanics of conservation easements and explore how various players such as land owners, nonprofit land trusts and government agencies work together to structure these transactions. We will also explore common questions and issues which arise in protecting a property's conservation values with this tool.

PROPERTY OWNER LIABILITY UPDATE
When will a landowner be liable for injuries that occur on his or her property? In 2015, the legislature passed a statute that defines a landowner’s liability to trespassers, and another related to a property owner’s liability for injury from open and obvious hazards. These statutes responded to decisions of the West Virginia Supreme Court of Appeals to reinstate or clarify common law liability standards. Other statutes and case law affect a landowner’s liability for harm to licensees or invitees and the validity of waivers of liability. This session will provide an update on landowner liability and limitations of liability, useful for any landowners or building owners, particularly those who allow or invite others to use their property for uses such as commerce, hunting, fishing, hiking, or agritourism.
