A landlord cannot enter a rental unit unless the tenant gives consent at the time of entry or within the previous seven days. 

The landlord must give the tenant 24-hours written notice (Form 4 - Notice of Entry) no more than seven days before the intended entry. The notice must give the reason for entry and the date and time the landlord intends to enter. The time must be within a four-hour period, between 8 a.m. and 8 p.m. 

A landlord may enter if the tenant has apparently vacated or abandoned the rental unit, or in an emergency. 

If the tenant has given notice to end the tenancy, the landlord may enter to show the rental unit to prospective tenants if:

  • the landlord has given the tenant at least two-hours notice; or
  • the tenant has provided a telephone or e-mail address and is given two-hours notice in that manner; or
  • if he tenant does not provide a telephone number or email address or the landlord is not able to contact the tenant by those means after reasonable attempts to do so, the landlord may leave a notice for the tenant at the entrance saying that the landlord has entered the unit for the purpose of showing it.  


If the landlord wishes to show the rental unit to a prospective purchaser, the tenant must either consent or be given a 24-hour notice.
