State law here says that landlords must give at least 48 hours’ notice before entering a tenant’s unit if it’s not an emergency. My apartment management always gives notice at the end of the day for the morning two days in the future, so it’s more like 40 hours’ notice. The notice references the 48 hours law, so it’s not like they don’t realize.
They also enter the units too often for no good reason, but I guess there’s not much I can do about that. But what bugs me the most is that for these pointless entries (and for everything else, such as testing the building fire alarm which means it’s going to go off for like 15 minutes straight, turning off the water for the building for a couple hours, etc.) they give a time window of the entire day, 9am-5pm. I see no reason they couldn’t usually give a window of half the day at most. It can’t be that difficult.
Anyway, would you complain about any of this or am I just being petty?
