Question: What about privacy? Can my landlord enter my apartment?
The landlord does have the right to enter your apartment under certain conditions. The landlord may enter the apartment:
• To inspect the premises.
• To make necessary or agreed-upon repairs, alterations or improvements.
• To supply necessary or agreed-upon services.
• To exhibit the apartment to prospective purchasers, tenants, or contractors.
The landlord may also enter the apartment without consent of the tenant in case of emergency but the landlord cannot abuse the right to access or use it to harass the tenant. Except in case of emergency or if it is impracticable to do so, the landlord must give the tenant at least two days’ notice of intent to enter, and may enter only at reasonable times (ARS §33-1343).
