Is my Florida landlord liable for injuries sustained on his/her property?

There’s no 100% liability. They have to be at fault, but if there was a defect in the property and a defect not known to the tenant or person on the property, the owner of the property can be liable. It depends. The tenant has different rights, you might say, than someone who just is on the property because if a tenant knew of a defect in the property … If you know of a hole, you step in a hole, the owner is not responsible. If you don’t know of the hole or if the hole is in an area where you disregard it if you’re going by, then the land holder is responsible or the tenant or the owner of the premises. It’s all fact dependent.
