Hello and thank you for your question. I will be very pleased to assist you. I'm a practicing lawyer in England with over 10 years experience.
Does your client still have details of the guest in question please?
Would you like to continue?
Yes my client has that information. I did not receive any response by email - sorry for the delay
I don't appear to have received any response
Have used your service before but you don't seem to read follow up emails. i assume it is a mistake.
The question remains - is a hotel owner responsible for the actions of his guest? Original question:We are a small firm of book keepers. A guest at a client's hotel threw a lighted cigarette from a window whilst staying at the hotel. The Hotel has a No Smoking Policy and notices festoon the building. The lighted cigarette caught next door's porch on fire (the guest admitted that he had thrown the cigarette to the fire brigade). My client has now received a letter demanding payment to repair the damaged property- is it his responsibility or that of the guest?
