Access and Privacy - Can the Landlord/Agent Enter Without Notice?

< Back to list

The Act provides some circumstances when a landlord or agent may enter the rental premises without giving you notice. These are where it is reasonably believed that:

  • The tenant is ill or injured and unable to give permission.
  • A denial of immediate access is likely to result in damage to all or part or the premises.
  • There is a risk to the tenant or another person present on the premises.
  • Damage has occurred to the premises.
  • The premises have been abandoned.
