Quiet Enjoyment

  • The tenant is entitled to be left alone (to quietly enjoy the property) without the landlord or his representatives e.g. popping in unannounced or conducting unscheduled works for which the tenant has not granted permission.  Prior to visits it is implied by statute that the tenant is entitled to receive 24 hours notice.  This said the tenant is entitled to agree a lesser notice period e.g. following request for a repair it is implied that the tenant agrees this be done without delay.  The tenancy agreement should specify such matters prior to signing for clarity and certainty.
