I’m on the last month of my tenancy agreement after the landlord exercised a break out clause to the contract. He asked me to come in the property to take measures for refurbishment work that will take place after I move out but the time was not convenient for me so I did not give permission and said that I will notify him when its convenient for me. Today I found out from the neighbour downstairs that actually he saw the landlord entering the garden side of the property. Now at that point I was away and I dont know if he also entered the flat as well but even if its only the garden can he do that? Is it not considered breaking in? Can I report him to the police?
I know that I have to give him access to come in but is it not in my rights to arrange convenient time for me especially if I believe that what they need to do will take a lot of time and its not a matter of urgency?
Thanks in advance for any answer and apologies if I’m repeating a common question but just joined and found it difficult to navigate the site for answers.
