Access to the Property
Under a tenancy, the tenant(s) acquire an interest in the land and in many respects is treated as the owner of the property during the tenancy. Entry onto the property by the landlord or their agent without permission is a trespass, even if it would be a breach of the tenancy agreement for the tenant to refuse, and may amount to harassment of the tenant and could lead to the landlord being sued. This is the case even if the tenant has not paid their rent or has otherwise breached the tenancy agreement. Also, unless the tenant voluntarily vacates the property, the landlord must recover possession through the courts using the most relevant grounds to their situation.
