FAQ – Can the tenant refuse to allow the landlord to enter the property?
If the landlord has followed the entry rules, then the tenant cannot block the landlord from entering. The landlord does not need the tenant’s consent to enter the property. If the tenant is concerned about not being present at the time of entry, they can contact the landlord to see if they can work out an alternate time that would work best for both of them. The landlord is under no obligation to agree to a different date and time, but may be willing to be flexible.
