Duty Owed to a Licensee in Florida

Florida has a narrow category of "uninvited licensees" who choose to come onto the premises solely for their own convenience without invitation, and are owed the same duty as discovered trespassers. Social guests and other persons who are on the property through the express or implied invitation of the owner are called "licensees by invitation" and are treated like invitees: they are owed a duty of reasonable care under the circumstances. [Wood v. Camp, 284 So. 2d 691 (Fla. 1973)]
