    Hotel lettings- can I exclude an aggressive occupier?

    We own a 'hotel' where we rent out units to various people/couples. They are taken in on an adhoc basis with no written agreement.
    One of our 'occupiers' has caused an incident involving a knife, the police etc. With Housing Benefit and additional monies paid to us, he has kept up to date with his rent.
    As the incident affected other 'occupiers' we would like to know the following.

    Can we ask him to leave immediately?

    Do we have to give him any kind of notice?

    Any assistance/advice would be greatly appreciated.

    1. What is the 'hotel'? Is it a hotel, a hostel, or what else?
    2. Do you live there?
    3. What services to residents do you provide?
    4. For the future, consider written Agreements setting-out rules!

      What if the premises is a HMO?
      The advice I give should not be construed as a definitive answer, and is without prejudice or liability. You are advised to consult a specialist solicitor or other person of equal legal standing.

        That of itself is irrelevant. Even in an HMO, each occupier may:
        a. have his/her own Tenancy Agreement; or
        b. be part of a multi-person joint and several tenancy (but no more than four people per tenancy, I hope).
