Can my landlord come into my place whenever they want?

3. Make sure your landlord knows the rules

Some landlords might not know that tenants have a right to privacy. They might think they have the right to come in whenever they want to because they are the owner or they work for the owner.

You can tell your landlord you expect them to follow the rules about giving you and about when they can come into your place. Showing legal information about this to your landlord may help convince them to respect your privacy rights.

If an employee or contractor is coming into your place, you might want to ask the company or the owner to make sure everyone who works for them respects your rights and follows the rules.

If the problem continues, you can complain to your landlord in a letter. Your letter should include details about what happened and why you think your landlord did not follow the rules. Put the date on the letter and keep a copy for yourself in case you need it later.
