Notice of entry

193 Notice of entry

(1) The lessor or lessor’s agent may enter the premises under section 192 (1) (a) to (i) only if—
(a) the lessor or agent has given notice of the proposed entry (the
"entry notice" ) to the tenant; and
(b) the entry notice is in the approved form; and
(c) the entry notice is given—
(i) for an entry under section 192 (1) (a) if the tenancy is not a short tenancy (moveable dwelling)—at least 7 days before entering the premises; or
(ii) for another entry—at least 24 hours before entering the premises.
Example for another entry under paragraph (c)(ii)—
If the lessor or agent hands the tenant an entry notice at 2.30p.m. on a Tuesday, the lessor or agent may enter from 2.30p.m. on the Wednesday.
(2) An entry under section 192 (1) (k) or (l) may be made without giving the tenant notice of the proposed entry.
(3) Despite subsection (1) , the lessor or agent may enter the premises under section 192 (1) (b) , (d) or (e) without giving the entry notice if it is not practicable to give the notice because of—
(a) the remoteness of the premises; and
(b) the shortage in the general area of the premises of a suitably qualified tradesperson or other person needed to make the repairs or carry out the maintenance.
(4) Also, despite subsection (1) , for premises that are a site only, or a site and a caravan, or a site and a manufactured home, in a moveable dwelling park, the lessor or agent may enter the site under section 192 (1) (b) to carry out maintenance of the site without giving the entry notice if—
(a) the agreement states—
(i) the frequency with which the entry is required for carrying out the maintenance; and
(ii) the conditions under which the entry may be made; and
(b) the entry is made under the agreement.
