I am so happy we sold our rental house in March!
At the very least I would send them a notarized letter, registered of course, you are aware of the proscribed renter and bring to their attention you plan to hold them responsible for anything he does and that they are in breach of their lease. So you're not necessarily telling them to get rid of him but putting them on notice.
