A tenant is someone who pays rent, in exchange for living on/in the property. There is typically a tenancy and as long as they pay the rent, they can stay, until the lease expires or until it is terminated by one party. An occupier is more of a guest. Someone who does not pay rent but lives there or asked to stay for a period of time.
