Good Morning. I'm preparing to start my first colonies as a beekeeper, however I'll need to place them on someone else's land (homeowners assoc in my area). Has anyone had to use a "bee hive land use agreement" to facilitate? And is there a generic one that works best? Thanks.

Good afternoon!  I am in a similar situation.  I would love to know if you have found an answer.

Hi, I have not gotten an answer yet, but I'm going to ask tonight at the new beekeepers meeting to see if anyone can help. 

I can't make tonight's meeting, but if you get some info please keep me in the loop.

Good Morning. The meeting Friday night went well. I asked about the apiary agreement. They recommend using a "land use agreement" that works better. I found one online that looked good:

Also they recommend making sure that the agreement has a 72 hour removal policy in case the landowner wants the bees removed. Without a 72 hour window you could end up scrambling to get your hives removed without having a plan on where to go next. 

Thank you Mike!!
