I was just curious of where the law stands on this;
My landlord gave me a notice to inspect my room, which they can do so every 4 weeks (s137(e) RTA), but they never showed on the date the notice states. I didn’t get a reason as to why or any heads up. Then out of the blue they knock on my door three days later asking to enter, and I refuse at that time for whatever reason (I value my time and privacy). They were annoyed and said they’ll be back with another notice.

What’s to stop them from hypothetically giving me a notice to enter for that reason everyday and just never showing? I would find this to be a huge inconvenienceand and stressful

Is the law every 4 weeks they can give a notice, or is it the actual inspection itself?
