When can a hotel charge your bank account?
Question Details: I'm currently living in a hotel which is supposed to charge my account $600 every 2 weeks. However, they have tried to charge my account early and for different amounts, as well as other fishy things happening like people standing outside my door listening into my room and listening to intimate moments with my boyfriend.
They can only charge you for the amounts you have agreed to pay and charges you have in fact incurred; and if there was an agreed-up schedule for charges, they can only charge when agreed. The agreement between you and them, whether written, oral (unwritten), or a combination is a contract and is enforceable as per its plain terms. If they charge you when they cannot, you could report them to the police for theft and/or sue them to get the money back. That said, in my experience, untrustworthy people will remain untrustworthy--they will presumably keep trying to do things they should not or legally may not. If possible, find someplace else to live.
