The rules of the common law continue to determine who is an occupier1. In order to be an occupier exclusive occupation is not required, and the test is whether a person has some degree of control associated with and arising from his presence in and use of or activity in the premises2. Two or more persons may be occupiers of the same land, each under a duty to use such care as is reasonable in relation to his degree of control3.
