Renter’s Liability

Premises liability involves the responsibility of property owners to maintain safe conditions for people coming on or about the property. Those responsible for the premises can be held liable for injuries, which occur on the property, even if another person or entity is the lawful owner of that property. If a person slips, trips, or falls as a result of a dangerous or hazardous condition, the renter and property owner may both be responsible in some manner. Several categories of persons to whom property owners and those renting the premises may be liable exist, and the duties of protection owed to each group are different.
