If you pay your rent he can't just walk in.he needs to at least give you 24 hour advance notice.even though it is his property you are the one paying to rent it.Even if you say no he can come in but ONLY if he has given you written notice.Surprise "pop in's" are illegal where I live,and I'm pretty sure most states abide by the 24 hr thing.If you are still concerned google your state rental policies(it is best to see if your town court has a website).I hope you can sue this jerk face for invasion of your privacy.

No a landlord can't enter your apartment, without your consent. That is not illegal for him to do.

You definitely try to be helpful with your answers, but I sometimes cringe when I read them. ( I sometimes go to myself, "No, No, No...." as a reaction.)

I think it would help if you "vetted" your answers with some specific referenceable information from the internet.

If you have paid rent rent and you r living in it then landlord cannot come there into the apartment he has no right to do so.And should inform you in advance if there is any emergency suituation.

Rely on the terms of your lease. Usually, your landlord must advise you in advance when entering your apartment for reasons other than emergencies. Good Luck

No your landlord can't enter your apartment without your consent for any reason. You paid the rent for it so you have the right to it.

The rights of landlords vary from state to state.  Some states are landlord friendly; some are tenant friendly.

What is legal in Main (for example) may or may not be legal in Nevada (for example).

I see a lot of answers come from people who consider such an action an "invasion or privacy" or against some other principle or valid reason for concern.

Unless you have studied real estate specifically, you do not know whether real estate law and your specific lease contract apply those principles in the same way.

Here's a site that will give you an overview of the considerations involved in answering your type of question.
