This Act defines the liability of an occupier of premises for injury to persons or damage caused to goods and resulting from actions or omissions of the occupier in respect of the occupied property. The Act also defines the liability of a landlord under the obligation of maintenance or repair of the occupied property. Where an occupier of premises is bound by contract to permit third persons to enter or use the premises, the duty of care which is owed to them by the occupier cannot be restricted or excluded by that contract.
