Rent inspections

The lessor (landlord or agent) has the right to carry out routine inspections on the property no more than four times a year. 

  • Inspections must be at a reasonable hour.  Tenant's should receive between seven and 14 days' notice.
  • The lessor must make a reasonable effort to negotiate a more suitable time if the proposed time is unduly inconvenient to the tenant.
  • The notice should specify the day of the entry and whether the entry will be before or after 12 noon.
  • In the case of carrying out or inspecting necessary repairs, 72 hours’ written notice is required.
