I doubt it.  I suspect that there are some specific reasons you don't want that person there, and for reliable advice you need to give all of the facts to a qualified lawyer in your area.  One place to look for an attorney is our website, http://attorneypages.com

Ordinarily, an owner has the right to invite whatever guests he wants, and the fact that you're not living there probably makes your opinions about that much less important.  If you're worried about your personal property there, remove it!  If the guest is damaging the real estate, that would be a legitimate concern, though.
