Property Release for Landmark home?
Aug 6, 2011

Greetings folks;

(Apologies if something like this has already been discussed --the search engine didn't bring up anything.)

Would anyone here happen to know if a property release is required to sell images of a local home that is a well know landmark here? (It is also registered in the National registry of historic homes.)

The home is privately owned and lived in, but my photograph shows it as it looks from approx.1/2 mile away across a lake, in the woods where it is located. The home itself, even though I have made it into the most prominent feature of the photograph, for obvious reason (the image is about the home), only occupies around 25% of the total image. Home + property take up more than 60%

I'm thinking perhaps a former US president's childhood home may be an analog. If someone else lives in it now do we have a right to commercial use of photographs of it?
