    Landlord access and entry to a rental property

    Helpful information and links

    Tenants have the right to privacy when renting. A landlord, agent or anybody else acting on their behalf can enter the property if notice is provided.

    On this page

    General information

    Tenants have the right to reasonable peace, comfort and privacy when renting.

    The law restricts when and how often landlords, agents or their authorised persons can enter the property while it is rented.

    A landlord, agent or authorised person acting on their behalf can generally only enter the property without the tenant’s consent if they provide notice to the tenant.

    Tenants can always give the landlord or agent permission to enter the property at any time for any reason.

    Minimum notice periods

    The following table lists the reasons where entry to the property can occur without the tenant’s consent, and the minimum notice period required.

    The notice requirements do not apply to any part of the property where the tenant does not have the right of exclusive occupation (e.g. a shared laundry or shared kitchen).

    Reason

    Notice required

    To inspect the property

    At least 7 days’ written notice each time

    (up to 4 times in a 12 month period)

    To carry out or assess the need for necessary repairs or maintenance

    At least 2 days notice each time

    To carry out urgent repairs, such as fixing a burst water pipe, a gas leak or a blocked toilet)

    To comply with health and safety obligations, such as inspecting swimming/spa pool fencing

    At least 2 days notice each time

    To inspect or assess the need to repair or replace a smoke alarm

    At least 2 days notice

    To repair or replace a smoke alarm

    At least 1 hour notice

    To obtain a property valuation

    At least 7 days notice each time

    (once in a 12 month period)

    To take photos or videos to advertise a property for sale or rent

    Reasonable notice, and reasonable opportunity must be given for the tenant to move any belongings that can reasonably be moved out of the picture frame/video scope

    (only once in a 28 day period before marketing starts or the agreement ends)

    To show a prospective tenant (in the last 14 days before the tenancy is due to end)

    Reasonable notice each time

    In an emergency

    If the landlord/agent has tried to contact the tenant and been unable to and has reasonable cause for serious concern about the health or safety of the tenant or other occupants

    If the landlord reasonably believes the tenant has abandoned the property

    To show the property to prospective buyers

    14 days’ written notice before the first inspection.

    After the first inspection, the tenant can agree on a suitable time frame but no more than 2 inspections per week with 48 hours’ notice ea c h time

    Limits on entry without consent

    There are limits to when a landlord, agent or authorised person can enter the property without the tenant’s consent.

    In most circumstances, entry is not permitted on Sundays, public holidays or outside the hours of 8am to 8pm

    See also:  Be prepared for ambulance wait times

    Where practical, landlords should notify tenants of an approximate day and time when entry will be required

    The landlord, agent or authorised person should not stay on the property longer than necessary

    If the landlord or agent’s authorised person (e.g. a selling agent, valuer or tradesperson) wants to enter the property, they must have written consent from the landlord or agent and must show this to the tenant if the tenant is home.

    These limits do not apply:

    • in an emergency
    • to carry out urgent repairs
    • if the property is abandoned
    • if the Tribunal so orders, or
    • if the tenant otherwise agrees.

    Entry when the tenant isn’t home

    The landlord, agent or authorised person can enter the property without the tenant’s consent if the tenant is not home, provided that the required notice for a valid reason has been given.

    If the correct procedures have been followed and if the tenant prevents entry by the landlord, agent or authorised person, then the tenant may be in breach of the agreement.

    If the tenant cannot be home, the tenant can try and arrange for someone to be there on their behalf.

    The tenant can also give the landlord, agent or authorised person permission to enter the property if they are not home without notice being provided, for any reason that the tenant agrees to. To avoid disputes, it is recommended that the tenant give permission in writing.

    Unlawful entry

    A landlord, agent or someone on their behalf cannot enter a rented property without following the rules set out above.

    Tenants should contact the Tribunal if the problem is serious or persistent, or any goods are damaged or stolen.
