Do's and don'ts of entry

A rental property is a tenant’s home. During a tenancy, the property manager or owner may need to enter for various reasons, for example to conduct a general inspection, to carry out repairs or allow potential tenants or buyers to view the property. However, under all circumstances, it is important to respect the tenant’s privacy and ensure their consent or permission for entry has been granted in advance. Our RTA expert in this episode is Sam Galer, Manager of Customer Experience.
