Landlords may have the right to ask for details regarding a tenant’s vacation plans. Landlords have this right if there is a term in the lease that states 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.
