Landlord making unexpected visits to property

Pittsburgh, PA |

My landlord had been showing up at our house lately without notice. He is responsible for lawncare, which is normally what happens. I also think he has been checking my mailbox. Is he supposed to give notice before these types of visits? I just feel like it's an invasion of privacy.

Should I set up surveillance on my mailbox? And call the police or???

If the LL takes care of the lawn, he needs no notice for that. He shuld give reasonable notice before interior visits. Your mailbox is off limits to him.

Tell him you would like to know when he intends to cut the lawn. If possible, try to have it at a time you can be home. Otherwise, make arrangements to pick up the mail on those days or even have it held at the post office for a day.
