Dear (Land/Property Owner),
I feel that a letter
before hand is a better emissary than knocking on your door or calling by phone at an inconvenient time and invading your
This may sound like a strange request, so let me introduce myself. My name is (your name here). I have
lived in (your town) for (number of) years. (More about self if you want to tell)
My hobby is metal detecting,
or more commonly called, treasure hunting. I've been engaged in the hobby for about (years) now. I find that it is a good
source of exercise and a great way to meet many interesting people.
Recently, I have researched information about
your property and the area surrounding it, goes back many years.
I want you to know that I respect all properties
that I search and leave them in the same condition that I find them in. Normally, the targets that I uncover are no more than
four to six inches deep, and that I retrieve them in a way that the ground appears undisturbed.
In addition, I
would like to offer my services to you. Perhaps you or someone you know has lost a favorite piece of jewelry or other valued
metal object. I would be glad to try and find it for you, just for the thrill of the search.
If you consider giving
me permission, I've enclosed two set of forms that I've already signed and a self-addressed, stamped envelope. Two are Permission
forms, the other two are Personal Liability Waivers. Please read them and sign all four copies. One of each are for your records,
the remaining two copies, please return them in the supplied envelope for me to place in my records.
If you have
any questions, please feel free to call me anytime. My phone number is listed below.
Thank you for your consideration.
