unlawfull entry?

Posted by Donna Latimer on January 20, 1998 at 16:18:01:

I was given a flyer saying that a repair man would come by on a certain
day to fix things in our apartments.
I need to know does the repair person have to knock first before he comes
in my apartment? Or can he just use his key and walk right in?
In my case he just used his key and walked in and got an eye full of me
laying nude in my tanning bed!! How embarassing!! I screamed at him to
close my door and he only closed it a little and stood there, I had to
scream at him 2 more times before he shut it all the way. He never once
told me who he was or what he was doing here. I live in California and I
do not know the laws we tenants have, I think the man should have knocked
first and told me who he was. Instead he just walked in on me. Is this an
invasion of privacy? The flyer DID say he would be there that day. If he
just would have knocked once, I could have said "Hold on, I need to get
dressed" but I had no chance, this should not have happened! Please give
