1. Possession; control; tenure; use. In its usual sense “occupation” is where a person exercises physical control over land. Thus, the lessee of a house is in occupation of it so long as he has the power of entering into and staying there at pleasure, and of excluding all other persons (or all except one or more specified persons) from the use of it. Occupation is therefore the same thing as actual possession. Sweet. The word “occupation,” applied to real property, is, ordinarily, equivalent to “possession.” In connection with other expressions, it may mean that the party should be living upon the premises; but, standing alone, it is satisfied by actual possession. Lawrence v. Fulton, 19 Cal. 6S3. 2. A trade; employment; profession; business; means of livelihood.
