: I received a notification from my landlord today that there will be
: an inspection of the apartments on wednesday and thursday and to make
: the apartment available. I have lived in apartments for 32 years and
: never was told I had to have my apartment inspected. They also said
: if there were any questions, to contact the office. I did. I wanted to
: know what they were inspecting for. The office manager said that the
: letter explaned everything. I asked again what they were inspecting for
: and she said that they do it about 2x a year. I asked again what they
: were inspecting for and she said she had to answer the phone. I walked
: out. It seems to me that they have to be inspecting for something!!!
: WHAT!!. per the information I read about florida's renter's rights, I
: have to let them into inspect their property, do repairs etc. But,
: shouldn't I be informed what they are going to inspect? It's not that
: I have anything to hide or that I'm violating the lease in any way or that
: I've broken the law in any way, it's
: just that I feel like they are doing an illegal search, or invading my
: privacy. Am I totally off the wall or do I have something to feel
: concerned about. I know that tomorrow is too soon to get anyone to
: answer this but, maybe if I get an answer sometime, I'll know what to
: do the next time. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

From what I have read your rented home or apartment is considered your
home which goes with the right of privacy. The landlord must give you 24
hour notice before entering the property, except in case of emergency, an
agreement to the contrary or impractiable to do so. Which I have printed
from the tel-law tape # 7016. Also, the landlord may enter your property in
order to make inspections, make necessary repairs, supply necessary
services, etc. but you cannot unreasonably withhold your consent. ORS
90.335(1). However, in turn the landlord cannot abuse his/her rights of
access, use it to harass you, or enter at unreasonable times. ORS 90.335
(3) (a). I'm hoping that this helps, I've typed all the info I got from the Tel-Law almost all word for word.
