That's the trick. In street photography, people can be pretty savy about the potential profit that can be generated by your photographs. So, to be fair, treat your photo subjects rather as friends, not some models you asked permission for in your studio.

I think it's matter of how well you communicate and maintain your relationship with other people.

But at the same time, some kind of release form as a record is, I think necessary, too.
