An owner of a building is generally liable for injury to a person if the building was
maintained or kept in a negligent condition which condition causes a danger to people
using that portion of the building. This applies to commercial and to residential
buildings.

Simply put the owner is responsible for keeping the building in a reasonably safe
condition, and is liable for injury caused by an unsafe condition. In order to hold the
owner or the manager of the building liable, the injured party through his or her attorney
must show that the owner or manager of the building either knew about the unsafe
condition, or in the use of reasonable care should have discovered the condition and
corrected it. For example, if a building has a super living in the building, it is easy to
show that the super who takes care of the building on a daily basis knew or should have
known about the broken step on the stairway since the super is in the building every day.
