An occupier of land is liable for a nuisance, even though he has not created it, if he has continued it while he is in occupation1. Further, the occupier will be liable for a nuisance created after he became the occupier if he had knowledge, actual or constructive, of its existence2. An occupier of land continues a nuisance if, with knowledge (actual or constructive) of its existence, he fails to take reasonable steps to bring it to an end3; and, if he makes use of the building or other artificial contrivance which constitutes the nuisance, he adopts it4.
