: 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.

But it's meaningless as the original poster is in Florida and you're in Seattle.
Some general concepts may be similar, but details vary from state to state. Generally,
as you indicated, the owner is allowed in for certain specified purposes with advance
notice (the time of the notice usually varies from place to place). Wanting
access for "inspection purposes" is a valid rason and I don't hink they need to
be more specific than that. You might guess what they are looking for based on
past experience or in talking to neighbors. But if they are doing it building-wide,
it may just be a general thing. If you think something is a no-no, then temporarily
hide it.
