Oskaloosa, IA asked in Real Estate Law for Iowa

Q: If two individuals own a property, both names are on the deed, do you need permission from both owners to say, hunt?

The property is in Iowa and it is owned by two family members. We just need clarification if permission is needed from both owners before anyone can hunt, fish, or ride four wheelers on the property. Thank you.

A: Either Tenant In Common can prohibit you from hunting on the property. So it would be much better to get written permission from all owners. One owner might not know about the other giving permission and put you in jail. You want to keep both owners happy. Game Wardens will also want permission from all owners.
