A liability is something one is responsible for. It is basically one’s legal obligations to another. The reason why there are many company’s who have their clients sign liability waivers is because it takes away any responsibility that the company would have held and the client has given up the right to lay claims should anything go wrong.

This is also helpful to those who wish to sell their property. In the event that one wishes to hand over any  property after a successful transaction, the person must then state that the owner has handed over possession of the vehicle and that all damages incurred and how the vehicle is used is no longer the seller’s responsibility. Those statements must be provided as it is required on a release of liability.
