  • Depends on what your lease agreement says. Some of mine have said that they were allowed to enter at any time and other ones said they wouldn't enter without giving notice unless in an emergency.

  • depends upon the state you live in. Most states yes. Google Landlord/Tenants rights and see what you find out for your area.

  • It varies by state. Where I live, it is unless there's an emergency, regardless of what may be in a lease agreement.

  • unless they have a reason to come in regarding something wrong with the place like an ER I myself and my father are both landlords and we always call before hand saying we need to come look at something and set up a time and if they are home or not its up to them what they prefer

  • Depends on the state and why the claim they entered the premises and what your lease says.

  • you would think so...but a friend of mine is having that problem with the landlord stealing his things. he cant prove anything unless he catches him on camera but his camera's have been stolen so he cant record him doing so.

    not only THAT but you also run the risk of getting yourself kicked out and finding a new home, because my friend is under the court's watch that he can do visits with his kids if he shows he's being a good boy and having responsibility, he needs his home, its not fair but that is the way it is.

  • hell ya! We had our previous one do that for nothing..I asked him what he was doing in my apt. He couldn't give me an answer and I told him it was illegal and if he ever did it again without just reason I would sue him! Let's just say he never did it again
