When can the landlord Enter the Property?


Landlord's access to the dwelling unit.  The tenant shall not unreasonably withhold consent to the landlord to enter the dwelling unit from time to time in order to inspect the premises; make necessary or agreed repairs, decorations, alteration, or improvements; supply agreed services; or exhibit the dwelling unit to prospective or actual purchasers, mortgagees, tenants, workers, or contractors.


The Landlord may enter the dwelling unit upon reasonable notice to the tenant and at a reasonable time for the purpose of repairs of the premises.  "Reasonable notice" for the purpose of repair is notice given at least 12 hours prior to the entry, and reasonable time for the purpose of repairs shall be between the hours of 7:30 a.m. and 8:00 p.m.  The landlord may enter the dwelling unit when necessary for the further purposes set forth above under any of the following circumstances:

  • with consent of the tenant;
  • in case of emergency
  • when the tenant unreasonably withholds consent; or
  • if the tenant is absent from the premises for a period of time equal to one-half the time for periodic rental payments.  If the rent is current and the tenant notifies the landlord of an intended absence, then the landlord may enter only with the consent of the tenant or for the protection of preservation of the premises.


The Landlord shall not abuse the right of access nor use it to harass the tenant.


Before an eviction for non-payment of rent can be filed in court,

​the Landlord must serve a proper notice on the property.
