Giving Notice to Access a Tenanted Property

It is surprising how many Landlords who (all be it innocently) do not give the correct written notice when entering a rental property.

Imagine your tenant waking up on a Sunday morning, still in their PJ’s to find the Landlord waving at them through the window with an unexpected visit or inspection!  As funny as it may sound, it’s not acceptable practice and a Landlord can be financially penalised for not giving the appropriate notice.

The Residential Tenancies Act gives specific guidelines in relation to the notice that must be given before entering a rental property.
