The landlord cannot charge you for not being able to adhere to a timetable that is both unreasonable and not agreed upon.
The landlord can enter if this is an emergency but cannot require that you empty out your home or else charge you.
There is no legal basis for the landlord to do this.
Let me know if you need any further clarification.
Am l allowed to refuse entry, as notice was placed in mailbox and not delivered in person. In fact,placed in mailbox twice as first notice had 3 different dates?
You can state you did not receive proper notice.
But the landlord may end up entering anyway.
You can take the landlord before the Dispute Resolutions Services and perhaps you can get a rent abatement because of an unlawful entry but at the same time he may say that you knew full well when he wanted to enter so there may not be that much sympathy for your position.
But it's worth trying to deny him entry if you need to.
