I looked at the Nolo thing it doesnt seem to be much help. The issue here is not a landlord making an appointment to make repairs. They want to come in without making repairs. They keep threatening to break in even though I told them they can not come in without an appointment
What is 24 hour notice? Is it notice if they stick something under my door when Im away for a week and dont get the "notice." Can they come in at any time even if its a hardship for me.
Naturally I dont want them in the apartment when Im not there when I object to their keeping me waiting all day and never showing up or calling they just say well you didnt have to be there.
: The LL is counting on having complete right to enter the premises at any time. The usual time is 24 hour notice before entry and only for repair. LL can't be doing insta-inspections on just a whim and say he'll show up and then don't call. These are mind games and abuse of LL power.
: LL wants to get cute then sometimes, just for tenant's own sanity, play within the same rules the LL claims he has. Keep meticiulous notes. Pay rent on time. In other words, don't give LL any other reason to be a jerk. Save money. And move.
