Tenants have the right to quiet enjoyment of the rented property, without any undue interference from the Landlord.
The Landlords can not enter the premises without the consent of the tenant. The Landlords have to give reasonable notice to the tenants for their visits/inspection of the rented accommodation, in all eventualities a prior-notice of at least 24 hours must be provided to the tenant.
Under the Protection from Eviction act 1977, any attempts or entering the tenant`s house , without getting tenants approval would be deemed as harassment.
Such tenant can claim damages from the Landlord for such interference in his/her right of quiet enjoyment of the property and further gain an injunction to prevent the Landlord from entering the property again.
However, you can not withhold the rent payments due to the unauthorized visits by your Landlord
