Does a Property Manager have the right to enter a property without the unit owner’s consent?

ATTORNEY ANSWER:

Yes, under certain circumstances set forth in the law.  The property manager may enter in accordance with a court order, if the premises appear to be abandoned by the lessee, or to inspect within the last 30 days of the tenancy or after either party has given notice to the other of the termination of the tenancy for purposes of determining any damages to the unit.  The lease should provide for access with notice to inspect, to make repairs and to show the premises to a prospective tenant.
