A private road maintenance agreement is often entered into for roads that are are privately maintained, rather than maintained by a public body. For example, the California Civil Code requires the cost of maintenance for privately maintained roads to be shared equitably by the landowners benefiting from those roads. Lacking a formal agreement between landowners, the Code requires an equal share contribution from each landowner. This is enforced through civil action, in other words, by neighbor suing neighbor. Private road maintenance agreements vary by jurisdiction, so local law should be consulted for specific requirements.

Neighbors in a private road maintenance agreement are responsible for paying the freight and organizing the work. Typical agreements require monthly, quarterly, or annual payments to the treasurer of the private road maintenance or homeowners' association. Maintenance occurs when a majority of participating owners decide it's necessary or according to a pre-approved schedule. Another method for road maintenance involves a combination of annual homeowner payments and county or city maintenance.
