Please read your lease. The landlord does have a right to access (in case of repair). There is a way to compromise (I love my privacy too). We had a discussion here over a month ago about this subject regarding keys (should LL have a copy?). If you send a polite short note (sent certified mail or fed ex, so you get a signature notification of receipt), stating you would like a 24 hour prior notice from the landlord regarding entry to the apartment (and within reasonable time, during the times when you're there -- never leave your keys with anyone, including the landlord! someone may make a discreet copy of it). Good luck.
: My lease says that I must provide my landlord with reasonable access to my apartment to make necessary repairs and, show the apartmemt should it or the building be coming on the market. If no repairs are necessary (and the landlord hasn't suggested that there are any reapirs needed) and since the building is not for sale and my apartment is not for rent, does the landlord have any right to enter my apartment? It is a rent stabalized apartment in Manhattan. Thanks
