Two inspections for housekeeping skills in less than a week, is this legal?

4 posts in this topic

My daughter lives in an apartment complex where the onsite property manager seems to harassing her about her housekeeping skills. Although her housekeeping skills could use a lot of improvent; her apartment is not a rat infested pig sty. Is it it legal for the property manager to perform multiple inspections in less tha a couple weeks exclusively for poor housekeeping.

Yes, it's probably legal, especially since "her housekeeping skills could use a lot of improvement."

 

She's apparently done something that brought her to the attention of the management.

 

As soon as she straightens up her act, the inspections will stop or at least be much further apart.

I completely disagree.  The poster didn't identify the relevant state, but I'm not aware of any state that allows a landlord to "inspect" residential premises for purposes of ascertaining the orderliness or cleanliness of the leased premises.  Generally, a landlord has a right to access leased residential premises for things like emergencies, maintenance, and exhibiting the premises to potential buyers or future tenants, and access requires advance notice (except for emergencies).  Unless the poster's daughter's lease allows for regular inspections for this purpose, it is likely that the daughter may simply refuse.  If the landlord enters without permission, she may have a claim against the landlord.
