    Lawyers agree

    Answered . Your landlord is only allowed to access your residence after giving you "reasonable" notice, which s generaly interpreted to mean at least 24-hout's notice. Give him written notice, by hand, and regular and certified mail through USPS, that he is not permitted to enter at will, but only upon 24-hour's written notice to yet, except in case of absolute emergency (fire/police), and inform him if he continues with his unlawfful entries you will file suit against hime for invasion of privay, and breach of the warranty of habitability and quiet enjoyment of your home. If he continues in his unlawful conduct, file suit against him using the summary process (eviction) complaint for damages.
