What is a Notice to Enter?

A Notice to Enter is a formal letter a property manager or landlord gives to the tenant of a rental property to inform the tenant of the landlord or property manager's intent to enter the residence on a given date at a specific time. A Notice to Enter is both a gesture of courtesy and a legal requirement that recognizes both the tenant's rights and the landlord's rights.

When should I use a Notice to Enter?

You should use a Notice to Enter any time you need to enter a tenant's home, except in the case of an emergency which doesn't require any notification. Some situations where you would use a Notice to Enter are:

  • An apartment or house inspection
  • Repairs or upgrades to the property
  • Appliance repair or replacement
  • Pest control services

A Notice to Enter is also used when a tenant has given notice that they are moving out, and the landlord wants to do a viewing of the property with an interested party.

In some states, it is legally required for a landlord to give a tenant 24-48 hours' notice before they can enter their rental property. When using a Notice to Enter, the landlord should keep a copy for their records, in case they ever need to prove they gave minimum notice prior to entry.

What information should a Notice to Enter include?

A Notice to Enter is a short letter that contains just the basic information required to inform the tenant of the event. A Notice to Enter typically includes the following details:

  • Name of the registered tenant
  • Reason for entry (inspection, repairs, etc.)
  • Rental property address
  • Day and time of the scheduled entry
  • Contact information for the landlord

Why should I use a Notice to Enter?

Use of a Notice to Enter fulfills the requirement for landlords to notify a tenant when they intend to enter their living space. The Notice to Enter also gives the tenant time to make any necessary arrangements and tidy up the residence before the landlord visits.

Using this notification form balances the landlord's right of entry with the tenant's right to quiet enjoyment of the property.
