Wait, you have to keep your place tidy? I’ve never heard of that! That’s so crazy. I mean, I’d clean up if I knew our landlord was coming just out of self-respect, but we’d never get in trouble if it was a mess unless it was something that was damaging the apartment itself, like cat puke not picked up or something.

Can they enter your house when you are not home? That would not be okay with me. Also, can they kick you out for not having a tidy house? I’ve never been in a place where anyone had permission to enter when we were not home, that does not sit wll with me.

Ya thats a little much. Who cares if u did the dishes or had sheets on the bed! You dont have stains on the carpet, holes in the walls she needs to get over it.

You can get in trouble for having a messy house?!  SERIOUSLY?  I mean, we own, so I don’t know who we’d get in trouble with…but when we rented….we would have been on constant probation.  I like to keep it clean, but I’ve got other stuff to do!  That stinks!

Totally understand about being house proud.  I learned that from my mom too.  I think they should have called you to let you know your place was being inspected, not mailed.  IMO if they have no confirmation from you that you’re aware they’re coming in, then that’s like invasion of privacy.  Knowing that your mail sometimes gets stolen, you should seriously talk to your rent inspector and ask for a personal phone call before they visit from now on.  If they have any sense of professionalism, they will honor your request.

Wow, that’s nuts! Our maintenance people can’t enter our apartments without prior authorization from the tennants, and they definitely have no grounds to fault us on the state of our apartment. I would not be okay with that! What if you were in the shower? Or walking around your house naked?! No one should be able to invade your space like that without permission! I would be on the phone bitching them out so fast!!!

That’s crazy!  In the US, no one cares how dirty your place is until you are moving out and then they take it out of your deposit if it’s gross.

Holy cow! That’s shocking!! I mean I could see if you were a hoarder and had garbage every where or 27 cats, that would be an issue. But laundry on the bed?! Jeez louise I’d get failing grades across the board with my wedding chaos going on!
