There is little doubt that if anyone is hurt on the property both owners would be sued. The court may find both sisters liable because one sister explicitly allowed this, but the other sister also knew it was going on. At the same time, the sister who is not involved could cross claim and argue in court that if she is liable to the person hurt her sister is liable to her. I suggest that the sister who is not involved try to limit her liability by writing a letter to her sister, and sending it be registered mail, demanding that she immediately cease and desist from allowing this behaviour to continue on the property. She should list the items just as they were listed in this post here. As well, the sister should ensure that the property has sufficient liability insurance coverage.
