Description: In the case of real estate, liability is ordinarily based on who is occupying the property. The person in possession may be liable for harm to a third person caused by the condition of the property even though the person in possession is not the owner, but is merely renting the property. Under common law, the liability to a person injured on real estate is controlled by the status of the injured person. A different duty is owed by the occupier of the land depending upon whether or not the injured person was a trespasser, a licensee, or an invitee. Invitees are such people as customers whose presence is sought by the occupier to further the business interests of the occupier. Another good definition of invitee is a person who goes on the premises of another in answer to an expressed or an implied invitation of the owner for their mutual advantage. There is a duty in this case to take reasonable steps to discover any danger, and there is a duty to warn the invitee or correct the danger.
