Liability exposure, in insurance, associated with three classifications of individuals that may come upon an insured property:

  1. TRESPASSER: individual enters without permission. Generally the insured has no legal obligation to render his or her land safe for the trespasser, but the insured cannot create a death trap.
  2. LICENSEE: individual enters with permission, but there is no mutual profit motive involved. Generally, the insured's only obligation to the licensee is to warn of any hidden dangers of which the insured is aware.
  3. INVITEE: individual expressly or by implication is invited to enter property; there is a mutual profit motive. Generally, the insured must use reasonable care to render his property safe for the invitee's visit.
