It depends. The answer is generally no; your landlord needs to give you proper notice (usually at least 24 hours in advance) before entering your rental. However, in emergencies (e.g., busted pipes) your landlord can enter without your permission.
You are required by law to give your landlord, his agents, and his employees “reasonable access,” to make repairs to the rental. Your lease may also require you to allow the landlord, his agents, and his employees to enter to inspect the premises and/or show the property to a prospective tenant, purchaser, mortgagee, or their agents before your lease ends. Your landlord also has the right to inspect the rental within the last thirty (30) days of your tenancy or after either of you has given notice of an intention to terminate the tenancy.
Where your landlord has the right to enter, reasonable notice must be given to you that an entry will be made at a specific and reasonable time. If your landlord gives reasonable notice and has the right to enter, but you unreasonably refuse to grant them access, they can ask the court to order you to let them into the rental.
If your landlord has entered your apartment without notice or permission, please submit an intake form to request services from SLSO.
