You have not
asked a specific question but I will try to assist. I am happy to answer any
The landlord is
entitled to come into the property on reasonable notice (usually, at least 48
hours except in an emergency) to inspect the property and to do minor repairs
but not to do refurbishment which is what he appears to be doing if this is
going to cause major disruption and is more than simply fixing a leak.
So, whether he is
able to come into the property really depends on the extent of the work
required. If it is going to be a few hours, I think he has the right to do it.
If it is going to
be a couple of days, then in my opinion he does not.
However what he
has the right to do legally on what he will do all wants to do two totally
If he insists,
you are faced with simply refusing him access. If he tries to be forceful, call
If the landlord
were asking me the question I would tell him that he is on very dodgy ground with
this and that he should rearrange it for the sake of two days.
It really comes
down to how walk with the landlord is going to be and how much grief you want.
You can sell the
landlord that you have been advised that as this is not an emergency and is not
a simple repair, you are not obliged to give him access and he will have to
rearrange it until after you have gone.
If he feels
differently, he is faced with a court application.
Does that answer
the question.? Can I assist any further?
