RE: Landlord access to property at (print your address)

Dear (print the name of landlord):

I am writing to inform you of the law regarding landlord access. Pursuant to title 9, chapter 137, section 4460 of the Vermont state statutes, a landlord may enter the unit with the tenant's consent. Without consent, a landlord can enter the unit between 9:00 AM and 9:00 PM with no less than 48 hours’ notice to:

  1. inspect the premises;
  2. make necessary or agreed repairs, alterations, or improvements;
  3. supply agreed services; or
  4. show the unit to prospective or actual purchasers, mortgagees, tenants, workers or contractors.

A landlord can only enter the unit without consent or notice when there is a "reasonable belief that there is imminent danger to any person or property."

I thank you in advance for complying with the law.

Signed:    (sign your name)
