New Grounds for Entry

< Back to list

If a lessor/agent has asked a tenant to fix a significant breach, such as using the property for an illegal purpose, with a Notice to Remedy Breach (Form 11), the lessor/agent is allowed to enter within a two week period of the expiry of the Form 11 to check that the breach has been fixed.

If the lessor/agent has organised repairs to be done on the property, they are also able to enter the property after giving the correct notice, to make sure the tradesperson has fixed the problem as requested. If the lessor/agent wishes to enter for either of these reasons, they must still give an Entry Notice (Form 9) to the tenant with 24 hours notice.
