Your Tenant Rights


Right to at least 24 hours’ notice for visits

Your landlord (or agent) may need access to the property during your tenancy, to carry out essential repairs, do an annual gas safety check, or to carry out improvement works. They must always give you at least 24 hours written notice of any visit to the property that isn’t an ‘emergency visit’.

If they have failed to give you sufficient notice of a visit to the property, you may refuse them entry to the property until you have notice. If they continue to ignore the notice period, you may allege harassment or threaten court action. Click ‘enforce this right’ for our simple guide on how.
