"You have no business to come into my house."
The above sentence is often written as "You have no business coming into my house"
But shouldn't we put a preposition before the gerund phrase "coming into my house" ?

Hi,

You have no business doing something is the standard and accepted form.

Is "doing something" a participle in this sentence ?
Hi,

I'm not really sure what I'd call it. Seens a bit like a gerund, perhaps.

Is the meaning clear to you? You have no legitimate reason for doing that.

The meaning is there in every dictionary. I just don't understand the construction. Maybe it is just an idiomatic expression without a proper grammatical construction.
