What property access is available to a landlord when the property is rented?
The landlord or his contractor will need to visit the rented property from time to time to complete repairs and safety checks, and to check that the rented property is in good condition. A tenant should allow a landlord reasonable property access. A landlord is required to let a tenant know in advance of a proposed visit to the property in line with the terms of the tenancy agreement. The landlord or contractor may have a set of keys to the property, but they should never use these without the tenant’s express consent, except in an emergency.
