THE LANDLORD NOTICE TO ENTER FORM
The Tenant has a presumed right to privacy.  As a landlord, you may not have the right to just walk in with your key, or just show up and enter the unit. In most cases, you must give the tenant "reasonable notice" before you enter the unit for repairs UNLESS it is a TRUE EMERGENCY.

REASONS TO ENTER  

-Make Repairs You Requested

-Show Buyers

-Inspections (Insurance, Bank etc)

-Show Future Tenant

-Make Repairs or Alterations

WHAT IS REASONABLE NOTICE?

What is considered reasonable from tenant to tenant and landlord to landlord  may vary.

Generally speaking and what is deemed reasonable by law in many states* is 24 HOURS WRITTEN NOTICE.  In many states, the law is specific to state entry during "normal business hours".  In other words - a landlord cannot come into your home at 10pm while your in your pajamas to make a repair - unless you give them your permission.
Again, in case of an emergency - such as a water leak or fire - the "reasonable notice" does not apply.

You should permit your landlord to enter the unit if they have a valid reason.

FOR LANDLORDS WHO ABUSE THE RIGHT TO ENTER: The landlord cannot abuse the right of entry or use it to harass you. If you believe your landlord has abused the right of entry, discuss it with them. Ask them to provide written notice as required by law and to only enter for legitimate repairs or to show the property if needed. If your landlord continues to violate the right to enter, you may contact the police and file a report.
