Landlords may have the right to ask for details about a tenant’s vacation plans. It depends on the terms of the lease. For example, the lease may say that the tenant must inform the landlord of absences from the property.
Landlords typically include this provision in the lease for insurance purposes. Sometimes a landlord’s insurance policy will state that if the rental property is vacant or uninhabited for a period of time, then the insurance will lapse and the landlord would no longer have valid insurance on the property.
