Renters rights and landlords entering property?
My lease states that , the lessor and his agents have the right at all reasonable times to enter the premises for the purpose of inspecting. My question is, does this mean they don t have to give a notice that they are coming. They can just shoe up and say that s what they re there for? The manager of the park I live in said that she doesn t give notice.
They can not make up their own rules. The only time they enter if they smell gas.
What state are you in?The law varies state to state but for my state you have to give 24 hours notice however if the tenant says you can come in then you don't need any notice.
The manager of your park may not be familiar with the pertinent state laws that ALWAYS require a landlord to give prior notice (or to obtain consent) to enter, except in an emergency.What state are you in? Maybe someone can look it up as a starting point for further discussion. Edit and update your original post with the details and we'll go from there.
Example: "No landlord shall willfully enter into the premises of the tenant without prior consent, other than to make emergency repairs." NH RSA 540-A:3,IV.Not all states make it quite so clear.
They have to give notice. The lease doesn't need to say that, they already have that right anyway.
24 hours notice is usually the overriding legal requirement. It is in the UK. Check your local tenancy laws.
Tenancy law varies by location, so you'd need to see what the legal standard is for your area. 24-48 hours notice is standard, but your mileage on that can vary. Also, keep in mind that in an emergency situation, adequate notice might go out the window and entry could still be perfectly legal. For example, if there's a gas leak affecting the building, a property manager isn't going to wait 24 hours to shut off the gas. Health and safety concerns take precedence.
It typically does not mean she doesn't have to give notice.In fact, regardless of what is stated in your lease you should check your state laws.They are easy to look up.A lease cannot get around those laws.
You do not state where in the world you are and laws are different in vatious countries........... one thing that is the law is you need to find the country/state you live in statutory landlord/tenant law and see what notice period ( if any) it states as the contract the landlord gave you and you signed can't ignore statutory law
If it is necessary they can do this with notice. If it is an emergency no notice is necessary.
If it is excessive and unreasonable you can refuse. But you might end up with a hostile landlord, a notice to vacate or even a court date.
Best advice: negotiate with the landlord and reach a compromise.
I once lived in a building that was up for sale and the landlord gave us advance notice when they were showing the place. It stinks but it is their right as landlords and your responsibility as a tenant to acquiesce.
