Gratuitous Licensee

An individual who is permitted, although not invited, to enter another individual's property and who provides no consideration in exchange for such permission.

For example, a person who obtains the permission of the owner of a parcel of land to park his or her car on such land for a few hours is a gratuitous licensee. Since the driver of the vehicle was not invited by the owner, he or she is not an invitee, and since the driver has obtained the owner's permission, he or she is not committing a TRESPASS. If the driver does not pay for the permission to park, the license to do so is thereby considered gratuitous.
