Landlords can enter a rental suite with 24-hour notice and do not need the tenant’s consent. See information on landlord’s access and entry. They are expected to follow health guidelines.

Some people may not be comfortable with accessing common areas or rental units without some modifications. Landlords and tenants should work together to find solutions, where possible.

Landlords may only enter a tenant’s unit without notice if there is a risk to life or property. See the Residential Tenancy Branch and BC Housing for more information.
