Landlord's Right to Access

Posted by Brian on August 01, 2001 at 16:07:36:

Hi. I rent on a month to month basis in a 2 fam. private house and want to know about landlord access. My landlord has seen himself into the apartment on various occassions without issuing me any prior notice (not a phone call, not a note, nothing). I was always under the impression that the landlord had to give you at least 24 hours written or oral notice before he can enter your apartment unless it was a dire emergency like a fire, flood, police situation, etc.

I read up on the issue in a NOLO book and the book says there is no law regarding landlord access. Is the issue of access addressed in case law? Or does the right to 24 hours of notice only apply to people in multiple dwellings/rent stabilized buildings?

Any info on the subject, or a point in the right direction, would be appreciated.
