What is a Florida property owner's responsibility?
A Florida property owner must keep his / her premise safe. They can do
so by fixing property hazards and warnings guests of any dangers. A property
owner is expected to offer a different level of care, depending on the guest.
Types of guests include the following:
Invitees: This includes any individual who enters onto a premise to purchase goods.
An example of such a property would be a grocery store. Property owners
who invite individuals onto their property are held to the highest level
of care. They must inspect their premises, remove hazards, and provide
warnings about potential issues. They can be held liable for dangers they
"should have known about."
Licensees: This includes any friends, family members, social guests, or anyone invited
to enter a premise for non-commercial reasons. An example of such a property
would be a residential dwelling. These property owners are also required
to fix any hazards, but are only liable for dangers they knew about.
Trespassers: This includes anyone not authorized to be on your property at a given
time. You have the least responsibility to a trespasser. You are, however,
not allowed to set up hazardous areas intentionally to guard against trespassers.

Most premises liability cases involve proving that a property owner either
created a dangerous condition, knew of that dangerous condition and failed
to correct it, or that the condition existed long enough that the property
owner should have discovered and fixed it.
Common examples of premises liability cases include slip and falls, swimming
pool accidents, amusement park accidents, and assault as a result of negligent
security. For more information about Florida premises liability laws and
