    Default Terms and conditions in leases

    The lease on the new place I'm renting mentioned that the agent has the right to inspect the property whether I'm present or not...but does this mean they still need my permission for it...cause it says they only have to give 24 hours notice. Could I have not agreed to that clause but still gone ahead with the contract?

    The 24 hours isnt general inspection, yes a landlord will require you to have 7 days written notice of general inspection (to do otherwise is illegal), a landlord can legally enter without the tenant present providing the tenant is aware of inspection

    So I would have to agree to it first or they can just give notice and come whether I like it or not?

    24 hours isn't legal notice. It's different in each state, but I think the minimum in all is 7 days, and yes, as long as they have given the appropriate notice in writing, they can enter and do the inspection whether you are there or not.m Inspections every 3 months are just a normal part of any lease.

    Default Terms and conditions in leases

    What does the clause say exactly? If it's to show prospective tenants once you've given notice there is no minimum required notice, just "reasonable" access, you can say no but you legally still have to give access , it will just have to be a tribunal order given time that you both have to stick to

    The agent can go in without you being there for other purposes but depending on what for there is minimum required written notice ( except for emergencies or unless you agree sooner) ( this is for NSW)

    Really? Geez, that's not much time! Here in WA it's a maximum of 10 days, minimum of 7. I didn't realise any state had 24 hours! I thought they were all minimum 7 days.
