On a jointly owned farm in New Jersey, with all owners living out of state, a recent inspection disclosed three surveillance cameras which were likely used for hunting deer and other game. I called police who came and confirmed, then I filed a police report, then I removed the cameras. Police told me that the likely owner of the cameras; let’s call him person A; has been renting the property out to hunters. I get home and began receiving phone calls and text messages asking for return of the cameras from Person A, so the police were correct. It is likely that Person A has other cameras on the property. What are my legal rights? (Yes, the property is posted No Hunting & No Trespassing). What happens if someone is injured on the property in a hunting accident -- am I liable if I (and the other joint owners) have no contract with Person A? Should I send Person A a “Reservation of Rights” letter?
