My landlord has given 24 hours notice that she will need access to my room for the following week refusing to give reason.  Does she have the right to claim access for a week? Is she required to tell me why?

Alex- you have total right of access control so, if she is unwilling to explain why access is needed (especially for a week which is very strange) you are legally entitled to deny her access. Should she enter after you have specifically advised she cant, then this would be tresspassing and can, should you wish to take this matter very seriously, to the local police.

I always advise tenants are reasonable with access requests by Lanslords as this is usally in your interest (repairs or improvements) but a Landlord has to play fair too!

Hope that helps- Kristjan
