My question involves an injury that occurred in the state of: IL
No injury just question. Landlord Loaned Lawnmower to Tenant since he had none, to mower his rented Single Family Home. He used 3 months last yr. Tenant is responsible for lawn care.
This yr. from neighbor saw he let a teen he hired to mow use the lawnmower - he broke throttle (safety lever still ok) I fix throttle switch so can start. Showed tenant how to operate lawnmower prior to using last year.
Concern: I plan to write letter to tenant informing that only he and no one else should operate lawnmower. Will that cover any possible liability? If Tenant gets hurt operating the lawnmower would I be liable since I loaned it to him?
