In Reply to: landlord entry into apartment posted by dan on August 15, 2000 at 21:51:41:

: is there a law that says how much in advance the landlord must request entry into our apartment? How about spraying for bugs and rhodents

The guidelines for posting questions here ask for your location, the size of your building, and whether you have a lease, among other things. Its important that you specify these things becuase they do make a big difference.

In general the landlord is required to give "reasonable" notice upon entering your apartment. What is reasonable is left up to interpretation. Its fair to say that routine maintenance, such as spraying for insects, might have a longer notice than, say, an emergency repair to fix a leaky pipe in your apartment, which might have no advance notice at all.

Hope this helps.
