What does right of access mean?
Category - Home Ownership Questions - Lease & Renting FAQ's
Under a lease agreement, the property owner reserves the right to access the leased property for inspection, repairs and maintenance during reasonable hours and upon advising the tenant of such plans.

In the case of an emergency, the landlord has the right to enter the premises at any time to prevent damage to the property and to protect life.

In addition, typically during the last 60 days of the term of the lease, the landlord may place a "for rent" sign in the yard or the exterior of the property and has the right to show the property to prospective renters. In this case, the landlord will provide ample advance notice to the tenant before entering the property.
