My understanding of the housing act is that a landlord cannot just visit his property when he likes, he has to give the tenant adequate notice, usually 24hrs.
Please correct me if I am wrong. I also have a few questions
1. Does this notice have to be a written notice, and if so how should it be delivered so that a troublesome tenant can’t deny getting one.
2. Does this notice cover more than one visit if assuming the property needed some attention and the landlord would need to make more than one visit to put things right.
3. If a simple phone call to the tenant was made to give a 24hrs Notice, can a tenant claim to not have been warned and the landlord turned up unannounced?
4. What are the rights of a Landlord when a tenant has not only breached many tenancy conditions but also fallen behind in rent by several months, does a landlord need to give his/her tenant a notice when the rent arrears have reached more than 6 months?
I will appreciate your answers to above questions.
