Licensees

A licensee is a person who has no contractual relation with the premises but is permitted, expressly or impliedly, to go on the premises. A social guest at a residence is normally considered a licensee. Liability to a licensee only arises for willful or wanton injury. It is usually willful or wanton not to exercise ordinary care to prevent injuring a licensee who is actually known to be, or is reasonably expected to be, within the range of a dangerous act or condition.
