A bank waiver is a legal document that releases a bank from all liability in case of loss or damage to specified property, subject to the conditions stated in the waiver.
The purpose of a bank waiver is to protect the bank from financial responsibility in case of loss or damage to property that is in the custody of the bank.
In most cases, a bank waiver is used in conjunction with a loan agreement, and it typically states that the borrower is responsible for any loss or damage to the property that occurs while it is in the care of the bank.
A bank waiver may also be used in other situations, such as when a customer rents a safe deposit box from a bank. In this case, the waiver would release the bank from liability if anything was to happen to the contents of the box while it was in the custody of the bank.
