My landlord has been coming over every weekend ever since we moved in to the house 10 months ago. When he comes over he walks outback and looks in the windows and scares the wife and kids. When I asked him if he could just call ahead so we know that he is coming so the kids don't get scared, he blew his top with threats of harm and sends me a letter stating that I broke the lease. Now I get a call that he is coming over the weekend to work on the water heater. Now, we never called him to work on the water heater and the water heater works fine it has been since we moved in 10 months ago and nothing was said about maybe possible problems with the water heater. Since no call was made to him for repairs do I have to let him in my house?

Thank you

Landlord Right of Entry

It would be helpful if you located the CT law on a landlord's right of entry on this site or http://www.tenantsunion.org/directory and had it for him when he arrived. Also, make sure that if he is NOT following state law, that you notify the police of his coming to the property. If he comes into the home without proper notice and/or notification, then call the police at at least file an incident report with them so it is on record what he is doing. Do this w/o his knowledge so that he is there when the police arrive. The landlord/property owner does have the right to come to the property; however, the reason and method of notification need to be reasonable and not done in a way as to harrass you/the tenants. Keep calm, learn CT law and document what he is doing. Good luck.


I found out information on CT and law and my attorney. According to the CT law and (Tenants Rights In general).
A landlord has no rights to the house or apartment once the place is rented. Also there is a privacy law for the tenants. Where the landlord cannot invade the tenants rights or enjoyment of the home or apartment. The landlord can enter the house w/o notice if there is an emergency (ie: flood, fire, etc.). Otherwise the landlord has no legal right to the property unless called for maintance or repair. Since he was not called for a repair he as no right to come into the house.
