Yes – the landlord is entitled to access the property to view the state of repair or condition or to execute repairs. Such access is subject to giving 24 hours’ notice in writing. However it is an established rule that all tenants enjoy what is called the covenant of ‘quiet enjoyment’ which means they are entitled to live in the property without interference from the landlord or anyone acting on his behalf (such as his letting agent). So, the having given the tenant the required notice as above, the tenant could deny the landlord access. If the tenant repeatedly denied access the only way a landlord could get access would be with a court order.
