Where a licence is granted to occupy land and the licensee allows a third party into occupation who causes damage, can the licensor obtain possession from the third party?

A licence to occupy land gives to the licensee the right on a non-exclusive basis to occupy the land. Such a licence is a personal right granted by the landowner and does not confer on the licensee any interest in the land. A licence is therefore distinct from a lease, which is an interest in land and confers exclusive possession allowing a leaseholder to exclude from the property any person, including the landlord, save as permitted by the terms
