In all 50 states, landlords must respect tenant privacy and do not have a right to enter a rental property unless they follow the proper procedure.
The most common procedure is to issue a Notice to Enter, which must include a valid reason for entry, and inform the tenant of a date and time when the landlord will enter the rental property.
Occasionally, a landlord might have to enter a rented property, which they can do with a valid reason. It could be responding to the tenant's request to fix something or after receiving a complaint about possible property destruction. Nearing the end of a lease, a tenant may also need to show the place to prospective tenants.
In these situations (and other valid reasons), the landlord can issue a Notice to Enter and notify the tenant in advance of the date and time. The only exception in which this notice is not needed is if a landlord has to respond to a valid emergency. In the specific case of an emergency, the landlord has a right to enter the rental property without prior notice.
