State law requires a 24-hour notice for the owner or an agent of the owner to enter the home. The following situations are the most common exceptions as per the rental agreement:

  1. Emergencies

  2. To inspect for violation of the rental agreement

  3. To make needed repairs when attempts to schedule with resident have not been successful.

As stated in the Right of Entry section in the Rental Agreement:

"Unless otherwise restricted by law [state law requires 24-hours notice], Owner may enter the premises during reasonable hours with or without notice in order to inspect, make repairs, provide general or preventive maintenance, replace filters, leave any notices, and/or for any other reasonable business purposes while Resident is present in the Premises. If resident is not present at the Premises, then Owner will have the same right to make such entries by duplicate or master key. If, in Owner’s opinion, there exists an emergency or a violation of this Agreement exists, Owner may enter without notice at any time for any inspection, repair, or to determine the condition or occupancy of the premises. It is the intent of the parties hereto that this provision grant to Owner immediate access if Resident is in default of any term of this Agreement, immediate access if in Owner’s sole opinion giving notice could change an investigation, immediate access to investigate a claimed violation, and that this provision be interpreted with the existing law to grant as broad and timely access as possible and permissible. Any request for maintenance or repairs shall be deemed to give Owner authority to enter the premises without requiring notice or further permission. Owner may secure the premises at any time Owner deems, in its sole discretion, that the security of the premises may have been compromised, including but not l imited to death of a Resident, incarceration or hospitalization of a Resident, usage of the premises by non-residents, and protection of Owner’s assets or security."
